TEXT/PLAIN (30 lines)

I commend MLA for doing what many of us NEED and needed for years, and I
am surpised to  discove that, lo & behold, it's being done but the
membership at large does not know a thing aboauat it.  (The other
exampl;e of secrecy is the updating of the Hospilta Library
Managememnt textbook, that has been in process for severa lyears now,
also under cover).   Why the secrecy, or sure looks like either secrecy
or neglected communication with the membership.

Although I have been an MLA member for 24 years, and have served on the
HLS and MLA committees, I have to admit that I have no incling as to how
Task Forces come about at MLA, and how participant get on board.
And I do read the MLA Bulletin, and this one does not strike a
bell, and it is not, I think, one of the opportunities presented when MLA
reminds us to volunteer for committees.

If I am truly stupid about the process, so be it, but I have a feeling I
am not alone.
