Dear librarians:

We want to thank you for your input to the CCL-EAR Committee, including answering our survey for our potential future reviews in 2018.  When we meet in December as we are finalizing our Fall reviews, we will also plan our Spring reviews and plan to go forward via the direction you gave us.

Reported by Dan Crump (chair)

LLPRAC met on September 25 at the Chancellor’s Office in Sacramento.  Much of the meeting was spent in reviewing proposed changes to the Annual Library Data Survey, based on input from both the Council of Chief Librarians and LLRPAC.  The changes will be incorporated into the next survey (2016-17) which should be sent out in the near future.
