SDSL Electronic Resources Task Force Reconvenes

The SDSL Electronic Resources Task Force (ERTF) has reconvened and will meet January 2022. The mission of the ERTF is to review, evaluate, and formulate recommendations for electronic resources for the South Dakota State Library based upon the needs of all parties. The ERTF was formed at the South Dakota State Library Board’s recommendation in May 2006. This task force is active during electronic resources trial years, review times, and other circumstances as determined by the State Librarian.
