TLA Day Two: Closing Session

One person from each of the six groups summarized their discussion, action items, big ideas.

Ideas that crossed groups:
- collaboration among libraries, across Texas
-- one central place for training, templates, practices, communication, assessment
-- "staffing consoritum" of expert, non-librarians
- collaboration within the external community (outreach and listening)
-- administrators do this
-- admin. empower young librarians and staff to do this
- state-wide library card
-- also state-wide database collections
-- federated search = exists already in the Library of Texas (LOT)
- train/staff in non-traditional library skills like marketing, communication, advocacy
- user-focus
