True to our Tennessee roots, the efforts and talents of our volunteers are the heart and soul of Tenn-Share. Following are some of the ways you can get involved with Tenn-Share and reasons you might get involved:
Serve on a committee - Contact the Chair of a committee with which you would like to work.
Help develop a database consortium - If your library subscribes to an electronic resource and you think a group subscription would provide better rates, contact Jenifer Grady. You can help out by identifying and recruiting member libraries for group purchases that save everyone time and money.
Submit a news item - Send news of interest to Tenn-Share member libraries to the Webmistresses for inclusion in the Tenn-Share semi-annual newsletterTenn-Share News, or post your news on the Tenn-Share listserv.
Share your special talents, skills, expertise* - Contact Tenn-Share's Executive Director if you have a special talent or skill you'd like to: a) use on behalf of Tenn-Share as an organization, or b) share with other Tennessee librarians as a workshop, webinar, conference program, etc.
It's my job to be involved
It helps me serve my patrons better
I can dream bigger, outside the box
TS can implement what we can't
I was frustrated locally and wanted to branch out
I can network and develop a rapport with colleagues who are geographically diverse and from all library types
It helps me to remember that mine is not the only type
I owe Tenn-Share for what it has saved our library budget
TS serves all types of libraries
I'm nosy and want to know what's going on around the state.
