I sorta like my suggestion of a SEE ALSO@the library poster slogan (get it?
SEE...view...uh...)

In any case, I'm hoping we can formally put this on the agenda to discuss
in SF. It's clear that we're going to need a group to volunteer for
investigating, coming up with a proposal to bring to exec comm, etc.

I sorta like my suggestion of a SEE ALSO@the library poster slogan (get it? SEE...view...uh...)

In any case,  I'm hoping we can formally put this on the agenda to discuss in SF.  It's clear that we're going to need a group to volunteer for investigating, coming up with a proposal to bring to exec comm, etc.

A grammatical suggestion: Instead of "VIEW", how about "LOOK" as in "Look
into your library". Or maybe "LEARN" as in "Learn at your library"? They
alliterate better.
