I like this version as well; suppose, however, that the organization has no 
library?  If we're inviting people to join as affiliates or friends, would we 
have a separate letter?      - Carol    (01)

This version is pretty good; except the first word in the second paragraph 
should be ETKN.                                    - Betty    (02)

DRAFT ETKN E-Mail Invitation    (04)

We would like to extend an invitation for you to join the Eastern 
Transportation Knowledge Network (ETKN). Our members have identified you and 
your library as important players in our region.    (05)

ETLN is a network of transportation libraries and information service providers 
located at state DOTs, universities, associations and other transportation 
agencies. By collaborating as members of a network, our vision is to increase 
the availability of our holdings, reduce operating costs, and leverage group 
access to transportation knowledge and information needed by our patrons    (06)

ETKN was created to support our transportation infrastructure.  It is 
especially important now to preserve and access this crucial information as the 
nation currently invests in our bridges, highways, transit, and airports. As 
you may be aware, a series of high-level initiatives over the past five years 
has resulted in increased interest in the potential of transportation libraries 
to improve research, business practices and day-to-day decision making by 
practitioners. Discussions on transportation library networking activities have 
resulted in the following documents:    (07)

"TRB Special Report 284: Transportation Knowledge Networks: A Management 
Strategy for the 21st Century"     (08)

"Transportation Knowledge Networks: A Draft Business Plan"    (09)

We hold bi-monthly meetings by telephone. This past year, we have found success 
in gathering information and coordinating with fellow members, the other 
regional knowledge networks and the National Transportation Library.    (010)

We believe membership will result in increased visibility and support for your 
Membership is free of charge. Our web-site outlines the membership criteria at<>
including a commitment to maintaining an organized  transportation collection 
and a willingness to participate    (011)

If you are considering joining, e-mail us back and we will forward a 
Transportation Librarian Toolkit, a resource book especially designed for 
transportation collections.    (012)

Or if you have any questions, contact membership chair Carol Paszamant 
Carol.Paszamant@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:Carol.Paszamant@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>  or 
myself    (013)

Sincerely,    (014)

Chair,    (015)
