ADLC Selection Committee

The Arkansas State Library’s program administrator for ADLC serves as chair on the selection committee and facilitates contact between Selection Committee members, ADLC member libraries and OverDrive.

Selection committee members are elected annually within each LSA tier by ADLC member libraries. Service terms run from January 1 to December 31 of each year.

Library staff at ADLC member libraries who are not currently serving on the Selection Committee, may make purchasing recommendations to the current selector who represents their LSA tier.
