MontanaLibrary2Go

Governance

Committees

MontanaLibrary2Go is administered by Montana State Library and by two committees: an elected Executive Committee and a volunteer Selection Committee. Montana State Library administers the contract with OverDrive, our primary e-content provider, facilitates communication and support within the consortium, and advises the Executive Committee as needed. The Executive Committee reviews the content budget proposed by the Selection Committee and makes recommendations to the Governing Board (the full membership) regarding budget and other administrative issues. The Governing Board votes to approve an annual content budget and cost share formula at its annual meeting.

Selection Committee

New content is added monthly, based on patron requests and selections made on a rotating basis by members of the MontanaLibrary2Go Selection Team. The Selection Committee follows the collection development policy and procedures as approved by the Executive Committee. Please contact the Selection Committee if you have questions regarding MontanaLibrary2Go Selection Policy or Selection Procedures.

Any complaints or challenges regarding the MontanaLibrary2Go collection may be brought initially to the Selection Committee. Please see the Title Appeal Process Documentation document under "Bylaws and Policies" below.
