Annual Return on Investment Reports   

NEFLIN has sent each library their personalized Return on Investment report for 2012-13. The membership is doing great with an average member paying $1,000 in dues and receiving $8,100 in services.

We want each member library to have a healthy return. Make sure that you are aware of the variety of services that NEFLIN provides by visiting this page on the NEFLIN website for a brief overview of each service we offer. 

Patty Morris Accepts New Position  

After over eight years at NEFLIN, Continuing Education Coordinator Patty Morris will be leaving at the end of October to begin a new job as Coordinator, Library Research at Florida Gateway College (FGC) in Lake City.

"I'll certainly miss working with Brad, Jeannie and Jennifer," says Patty, "as well as the many NEFLIN members who have helped me through the years. I'll still be a NEFLIN member at FGC and I look forward to staying in touch." 

NEFLIN Lending Library: TechSet 

NEFLIN has the entire Tech Set now available in its Lending Library. These 20 books cover innovative technologies and how to incorporate them into your library's services.

ALA provides not only the printed book on each topic but a companion website that provides additional content for each title. Here is the original article from American Libraries about the Tech Set and some ideas on how to include these technologies into your library's digital strategy.

NEFLIN Libraries Recognized for Exemplary Projects 
Each year the Division of Library and Information Services selects exemplary projects from among the many outstanding programs funded by LSTA. This year two NEFLIN members were selected for this honor.

The Jacksonville Public Library improved their capacity to serve an increasing number of adults with limited reading and/or English skills through their "Expanding Horizons Adult Literacy Project".

The Marion County Public Library System was recognized for their "Ready to Read: Zero to Three". This program utilized current and new collaborative partnerships to provide multiple points of contact between the library and at-risk parents/caregivers of children from birth to three years of age.
Member Library Spotlight

University of St. Augustine
Julie Evener, Library Services Coordinator

The University of St. Augustine Library is made up of one branch on each of the three campuses: St. Augustine, FL, San Marcos, CA, and Austin, TX. Our Florida campus library is staffed by two full time employees, the Library Services Coordinator and a Circulation Manager. Our mission is to support the curriculum of the University of St. Augustine, which focuses on graduate health sciences education, specifically master and doctorate degrees in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and orthopedics.

Dr. Stanley V. Paris founded the University of St. Augustine in 1979 as the Institute of Graduate Health Sciences in Atlanta, GA. The Institute moved to St. Augustine, FL, in 1991 and expanded to become the University of St. Augustine as more degree programs became available.

In addition to the typical books, journals, databases, and similar resources you'd expect to see in a graduate-level library, the USA Library also lends plastic bone models, portable therapy tables, goniometers, compression wraps, and other relevant equipment to students and faculty. Our holdings include a collection of occupational therapy assessment manuals and kits, as well as an archive of historical physical therapy monographs originally a part of Dr. Paris's personal collection.
