The ODIN Advisory Council advises ODIN about library issues, ideas on the direction ODIN should take and how to pay for special implementations. Membership includes a representative from each ODIN library and has an elected chair. As we transition to two new systems in 2019, we’ll be looking at which policies & documents need to be updated to keep ODIN current & relevant.
Through the years, the individuals listed above were ODIN Advisory Council Chairs who have guided the council through various critical issues. They offered their expertise and time to benefit ODIN libraries in North Dakota. The Council usually meets at least twice a year and more often if issues arise. User Groups and Work Groups also offer expertise to the Council on various matters concerning functional areas of current software.

The ODIN Executive Steering Committee was established in 2017. They make recommendations on initiatives, priorities, and policies/procedures to the ODIN Advisory Council with consideration of the alignment of resources with those recommendations. Voting members are elected to the committee, except for the ND State Librarian and ODIN Advisory Council Chair (who are members because of position) and usually meet once/quarter. Non-voting members include the Director of ODIN and ODIN Office staff. Any ODIN member may provide information to the committee in an advisory position.
ODIN salutes & thanks all ODIN Advisory Council Chairs and the ODIN Executive Steering Committee who have guided ODIN’s presence in North Dakota and continue to chart future successes.
