Like to give KDL a try? Follow these steps.
Staff of KDL member institutions are invited to participate in the KDL Member Council, which meets electronically approximately three to four times each year for updates on the work of the KDL Work Group, for support and collaboration, and to prioritize member needs and concerns. Meetings are coordinated by KYVL and the KDL Work Group chair, and announced via the KDL News e-list.
Institutions considering participation in KDL are invited to take part in meetings of the member council; however, voting privileges are limited to one vote per KDL member institution.
