In 2010, the State Library of Kansas will stop posting a monthly newsletter and start posting news items whenever they need to reach the Kansas library community. This will allow for more timely press releases and information postings. It will also end the posting of a long list of articles on the first of each month.
The last issue of the newsletter had its adventures as the State Library staff coped with the move to the temporary State Library and the Northeast System staff worked to mend the damage to the statewide network of KLOW sites that was done by a hacker. But the State Library staff was already planning a change in their style of news distribution.
The State Library staff will continue to ask Kansas librarians to share the exciting projects that are taking place in their libraries and in their regional systems. We will also continue to post to staff columns such as the Marketing Column, the Catalog 2.0 Column and Consult the Cat.
As fresh and timely news is posted to the SLK Blog, please remember that you are encouraged to send your comments on any SLK News posting. We really enjoy hearing from you.
The State Library staff would also like to thank the many Kansas librarians and community leaders who have contributed to all the newsletters published by the State Library of Kansas.
