Discussion of linkages among libraries and scholars, as well as libraries and education. Discussion of time needed to incorporate dLOC funding into the budget over time.
Discussion of Haiti partners and creating a shared community and is collaborating wit h the Quebec Archives and IF LALAC Review of the Executive Summary. (The next version of this document will have page numbers.) Review of key points. comparative research and education On a general level, there are many resources from the UN, UNESCO, and others that could be wonderful to be added to dLOC. How could this be done on an collaborative level to ac tively seek and add materials? One possibility is having small groups, like legal groups interested in specific topics, and each would add materials. These could be small, virtual groups that could focus on specific topics. Discussion of if this could be a committee charged today, or this could be done within t he existing Collection Development committee or this could work within local priorities and commitments Next year across the Caribbean countries will be celebrating 150 years of abolition of slavery. Panama and the Canal project as another that will be cross cutting given how many countries are represented in the building of the Canal. There are so many themes that should be balanced with local priorities. There needs to be an explicit structure, format, and method for this to be done to make it succe ssful. There also needs to be instruction for this and infrastructural supports so that the partners at the local level can do this easily In addition to dLOC developing materials for this, partners will also identify resources that are needed. For instan ce, partners need training on requesting permissions. CARICOM is frequently queried regarding how to better support Caribbean writers, with records, abstracts, and excerpts to share what is being published. This would support writers, countries, and collec tion management within libraries. This is another procedural document that is needed for how authors or others can load small selections from materials to dLOC. Need for deadline to get the planning document to the next level. The tentative plan is to ge t the document into the final form by fall. Discussion of goals and plans, and need to share the story of dLOC with many commercial firms. For the commercial groups, we should have a category for donors in addition to the member categories. Certain comm ercial entities that have always funded publication of books from specific islands and so they could also support those digitally as well. This would be a statement for inclusion in the plan and a sample letter for partners to take to commercial groups in their area. Need to ensure that partners and members see the benefit at the local level. Need more partner contributions for the newsletter. For the next ACURIL, there should be a panel presentation proposal for 4 5 partners to discuss their content in dLOC as a panel The donation brochure needs to have bank transfer information for direct transfers from finance departments.
