New BLOG to assess state library needs

The Advisory Council on Library Planning and Development and the Connecticut State Library are currently engaged in a planning process for the Library Service and Technology Act (LSTA) program in the state.
As part of this process, Sharon Brettschneider (Director, Division of Library Development Connecticut State Library) has set up a blog to gather input to better understand the needs of Connecticut libraries and the trends they see affecting their future. This discussion will help us develop a plan for the use of LSTA funds during the next five years. In addition to holding focus groups and conducting an online survey we also wanted to try blogging as an alternative way to 'talk' with libraries.
