The 2017 NEFLIN Annual Meeting will be held at Jacksonville's Schultz Center on September 15, 2017.

We look forward to providing a day of fun and learning!

Second Seat Added

Hey NEFLIN Members!  Did you know that you now have the ability to schedule and run your own meetings 24/7?  
Now YOU can host your own meetings, or schedule the use of our Virtual Classroom at your convenience.  

One of the most limiting factors of our online meeting was that only one event could take place at a time.  In the past, if a scheduled webinar or class were taking place, members would not be permitted to use the room at that time.  With the addition of this "second seat", we can now host two overlapping events.  And, because you can now schedule your own meetings, you aren't limited to hours that NEFLIN staff are in the office.  Meet whenever it is most convenient for you!

Spotlight on Episcopal School of Jacksonville

Episcopal School of Jacksonville
Celebrating many years of dedicated service to Jacksonville families, Episcopal recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, an important milestone that reinforces the School's permanence and strength within the community. Since 1966, the School has lived up to its founding mission of excellence in academics, service, athletics, arts and Christian leadership.

During the 2014-15 school year at Episcopal School of Jacksonville, the planning began for a two-phase renovation project in the Jacob F. Bryan III Library. The Bryan Library was built in 1992. With the exception of new carpeting and a couple office moves, there had been no major changes in the building since the opening . . . same furniture, same layout, same procedures, etc. We had been in a place "stuck" in time. Libraries were changing all around us. We were given the opportunity to take a huge step towards modernization and we jumped on it.

See photos and descriptions of the newly renovated library.

Digitizing Specific Collections and Archives

2-Part Online Class
Thursdays, June 8 &15
10 am - 12 noon, EST
Mass digitization provides a powerful tool both to preserve valuable collections and to share unique and difficult-to-obtain materials.  Many of these collections, however, contain works still protected by copyright.

In this interactive series, you will learn to identify, assess, and address the challenges copyright presents to mass digitization projects, including evaluating fair use in such situations, dealing with orphan works, assessing risk, and obtaining permission.
