Dear LM_Netters,

This survey announcement is being posted with the permission of the LM_NET

At the 1996 ALA annual conference, the SSIRT (Support Staff Interest Round
Table) Executive Board gave their approval to a strategic planning process.
The process called for the formation of a Strategic Planning Process
Steering Committee whose charge was to identify a full range of library
support staff issues.

Steering Committee members included:

* Sara Stichert, Library Services Assistant Sr., UW-Oshkosh (WI)
* Ed Martinez, Public Access Librarian, El Camino College (CA)
* Nancy Leighton, Library Assistant, Bay High School (OH)
* Barbara Royer, McNeese State University Library (LA)
* Stephany Liptak, Orders Supervisor and Library Technician II,  University
of Southern Colorado Library
* Dorothy Morgan, Business Manager, Liverpool Public Library (NY) * Martha
Parsons, Washington State and ex-oficio member
* Jim Hill, President, ALA SSIRT, Auraria Library, University of Colorado
at Denver

The American Library Association Support Staff Interests Round Table is
conducting a brief survey to determine the predominant issues facing the
library support staff community. The results will be used to help
facilitate short and long-term ALA SSIRT strategic planning. You do NOT
have to be a member of ALA or SSIRT in order to complete this survey.
LIBRARY SUPPORT STAFF input is sought and appreciated. The survey should
take less than 5 minutes to complete. Preliminary findings of the survey
will be discussed at the ALA Midwinter Conference. Results will be
tabulated until May 30.
