Ms. Farley,
   If I'm not mistaken, both Barbara Wrinkle, who heads the Air Force
Library Program in San Antonio, and Ann Parham, the Army Librarian, have
considerable experience in those two services with libraries that have
gone through the A76 process.  Navy libraries have dealt with this as
well, but as usual with the Navy there's no central office that I know
of to consult on this, although James King at the Naval Research
Laboratory Library and Maxine Reneker at the Naval Postgraduate School
are always knowledgeable sources about naval libraries.
   Good luck.

Dear Colleagues,

The Technical Information Center and Library at the MSHA Academy is a
specialized collection focusing on mine health and safety.  We are in
the
middle of a streamlined A-76 study at the moment. We should hear by
December
20th whether or not they have decided to keep us in-house or go to the
MEO,
advertise etc. Does anyone have any suggestions? Advice?

This is a case where they are considering ALL library jobs including
mine --
the librarian/director. This could possibly leave the Technical
Information
Center and Library contract being managed by a federal employee with
no
library education or training. Maybe this is typical -- I don't know.

I would like to hear any and all experiences. There is no way that I
could
attend this session and I fear that it will be too late in the game to
help
us.

Yvonne Farley
Director
