This webcast will explore the key provisions of two major acts that impact California libraries. The California Public Records Act: Is every email you send a public record? Memos to your boss? When can the public get these records? What is excluded? How long must a library keep its records? The Brown Act: What meetings must be open to the public? What kind of notification must be given? What are the exceptions? What constitutes "pending litigation"? Can personnel discussions be closed?
