Subject: Update on the "Videoconferencing Librarians Interest Group" Dec 8th


To date, we've had 40 individuals from school, public, academic, state, and
national libraries respond to the invitation to join the inaugural meeting of
the "Videoconferencing Librarians Interest Group"
on December 8th at 11am PST/Noon MST/1pm CST/2pm EST.

Many of you planning to connect to the Kan-Ren MCU have already completed

Those of you connecting to the MAGPI MCU will test in the next week.
For those planning to join via phone conference, additional details will be
forthcoming. Additionally, I've subscribed each of you to a new
listserv to help facilitate group communication leading up to the meeting
and beyond.

In an effort to help us get acquainted, I'd like to ask each of you to
reflect upon the following questions and post your responses to the listserv
by Friday, 12/2.

1) Please describe your past experience or interest in using
videoconferencing within your organization.

We have used our videoconferencing equipment for the following reasons
Library related Trainings/worships
Library related meetings
Connected to other sites for programming for public
Job interview - business out of state used it to interview a local
Law depositions - lawyer from PA came to Dodge City, connected to his
home office via videoconferencing to take depositions of those in Dodge City
State utility rate hearings

2) What's the most important thing you hope to get out of participating in
this group?

Hear how others are using videoconferencing
How do you promote it to the community

3) Are there specific questions, topics, collaborative activities you'd
like the group to explore together?

Are there activities we can join together to offer to our patrons,
programming ideas.

Your insights will help us make our initial meeting as relevant and
productive as possible. I'll look forward to your thoughts.

I hope each of you enjoy a restful Thanksgiving holiday! In the meantime,
please don't hesitate to get in touch with questions.

Best Regards,

James Werle
Director, Internet2 K20 Initiative
