The State Library of NC is participating in a grant-funded project called EXCITE Transformation that teaches iterative design processes for creating library services and programs.  Part of the design process is bringing together people to gather feedback and to better understand participants needs. At this stage we are simply interested in your thoughts and feelings about collaboration. Why do you like it or why don't you like it? Eventually, your feedback will help us design a program or service that brings librarians together to share ideas and collaborate in a meaningful way.

Please contact Amanda Johnson, or 919.807.7421 for more information or questions.
