Growing Resource Sharing in IHLS Grant Announcement

The secret we’ve been keeping is now public knowledge, and we can tell you what it is! IHLS staff have been working on a grant—commonly known as the Dream Grant among SHARE staff—for the last couple of months. We were quite pleased to be able to announce at last night’s IHLS board meeting that we are about to receive $996,242.00 in grant funds from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and the Illinois State Library, for the purpose of Growing Resource Sharing in IHLS through Growing SHARE Membership.

Candidates for IHLS Board of Directors Election

Voting for the IHLS Board of Directors is done via an online survey/ballot. The link to that survey was distributed via the IHLS Announce listserv on March 15, 2014. EACH MEMBER LIBRARY RECEIVES JUST ONE VOTE. This is a preview ballot for viewing the candidates prior to voting.

New to the election this year is a provision for write-in candidates for 2 of the seats. Because there were no nominees to fill the open Special Library seat and one of the Public Library Trustee seats, voters will be able to write in a candidate as they cast their ballot. The eligible nominee with the most votes will win the respective seat. Eligibility will be verified by the IHLS Nominating Committee. If no eligible candidate steps forward in this election, any empty seat will be filled by the IHLS Board President, as approved by the full IHLS Board.

 Please consult with your board, branches, or others as needed prior to voting. One designated person should then vote on behalf of the entire member library using the link distributed on the IHLS Announce listserv.

VOTING DEADLINE: 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, APRIL 15, 2014

IHLS Board Election voting ends April 15

Voting is now underway for the 5 open seats on the IHLS Board of Directors. Seats to be filled are: 1 Academic Library Representative 1 Special Library Representative 1 School Library Representative 2 Public Library Trustee Representatives Please read these instructions carefully prior to voting:
