Hello everyone,

On April 29th John Berry, the new Director of the Office of Personnel
Management, announced his plans to expand the use of telework throughout
the federal government. See the URL below for more information:,1460.aspx

In addition to assisting staff balance their personal and work lives,
telework can be effectively employed when agencies are faced with a
disaster or health emergency. Critical library functions can continue to
be performed while employees are not present on-site.

The FLICC Human Resources Working Group would like to develop a
telework policies, procedures and best practices web page that can be
referred to by federal agencies as they implement or enhance telework

If your agency has policies or procedures you can share with FLICC,
please send them to me at [log in to unmask] . We are particularly interested
in policies that directly relate to library and information centers.

Thank you,


Karl E. Debus-López
