What is this PALDigital?

PALDigital stands for “PALNI Digital Advisory Group.”  Currently, they are one of seven supporting groups that keep PALNI running full-steam.

What do they do for PALNI?

Simply, PALDigital are our digitization and archival experts. They advise the executive director, the EC, and the Board on the impact and direction of changes related to archiving and digitization of documents.

Who do they report to? Is there a heirarchy?

We value each PALNI member and group tremendously and all work together to keep PALNI running smoothly. We find it is most effective to have a reporting system  so nothing gets “lost in the shuffle”  or overlooked. The group of PALDigital reports to the Executive Committee (EC) through the Executive Director (ED).

Can you be more specific about their responsibilities?
PALDigital sounds right up my alley. May I join?

PALDigital membership is open to library personnel in PALNI supported libraries with archiving and digitization responsibilities. But do note: Regardless of the number of members, each institution will have one vote.  The institution will have the responsibility for determining the voting member.

*** Each advisory group has the liberty and responsibility of developing a more detailed operational document in order to achieve optimum effectiveness in meeting the goals delineated here. For more information about the advisory groups for PALNI please contact the appropriate person.
