What will your group be working on for the next six months?
The group will meet at least two more times, 1 virtually and 1 in person at ALA Annual. We will come up with a document for the next working group to easily identify links that change each year and the work that was completed this year. We will also outline areas that need the most work.

We do not.

Do you have any suggestions for future products or resources (excluding conference programs) to be developed based on your group’s work?
We do not.

Are there other PLA/ALA committees your group might collaborate with to benefit the work of all?
None at this time.

Have there been any issues related to meeting participation/attendance for any of the group’s members?
