Hah!  I was not able to share a drop box with the entire contact list at one time and so it looks as if no one got link.  I'll dig in and figure it out.  /Sharon

Hi Sharon,

 

I agree that the spreadsheet field is not a good solution, unless the given author has a media kit link on their website, etc. available. I think a cloud storage option is a great idea! At my previous institution, we used Box; but I don’t have access to that or even Dropbox here. Thank you for offering the Dropbox option!

 

All the best,

Karen

Thanks Karen, 

 

In re: spreadsheet:

 

can we simply paste jpegs of our bookjackets into a spreadsheet?  I would have thought not (?).  If we need to upload instead and don't want to default to a submission system,   I can create a DropBox folder to share out (as I did in 2016 when everyone sent images for a Great Reads poster), and people can upload their files.  

 

for those not around then, here's a link to that poster:   https://www.dropbox.com/home/NBF2016_MassCenterforBook?preview=NBF_STATESPOSTER.pdf  

 

It was done in-house here at MCB and  so is a bit underdesigned ... but it does present the scope of the project  we are now trying to virtualize.

Hi All,

 

Draft minutes from the meeting yesterday are on the Agenda doc. I don’t think I noted all of the ambassadors who volunteered…. Please don’t hesitate to edit/adjust the minutes. Also, Sharon sent me the Great Reads Google sheet from last year, and Lisa sent me column headers from Route-1 Reads. From theses, I drafted a 2020 Great Reads Google sheet, which can also be edited as needed.

 

All the best,

Karen
