NTLP project-related websites

Submitted by judy on

Although NTLP projects are no longer funded, NTLP has arranged for certain of its project websites to continue to be available for the near future.  Note that the sites are no longer being updated, so information on them may no longer be current.

Where URLs have changed, the old URL will redirect to the new one for a limited time. Please update your links and bookmarks.

How to Use Google Apps for Your Nonprofit’s Email

Submitted by judy on

Google Apps is the enterprise-level version of Google services, including GMail (web-based email), Google Drive (online document editing and file storage),  Google Groups (email mailing lists and online discussion forums), Google Sites (website creation) and other services.  The Google Apps versions of these services are subtly different from the free versions, in that they recognize your organization’s custom domain name and have a central administration console where your organization’s Google Apps admin can assign users and control domain-wide settings.   

Final Update on NTLP Shutdown

Submitted by judy on

 Although NTLP now has no paid staff and has terminated all services except for seeing previously-made commitments through to completion, it continues to exist as a nonprofit entity with a governing Board of Directors.  The Board will meet in June to determine next steps for the nonprofit.
NTLP has completed its report to TSLAC regarding the history of the former NTRLS Cash Reserve, which was spent down on allowable expenses.  We wish to give special kudos to NTLP Office Intern Christina Johnson and Accountant Sherrie Caraway for their work in researching and helping to pull together this report.

For ongoing contact information, please see the ‘Contact Us’ page on the NTLP website for email addresses and phone numbers.  Note that mail should now be sent to a post office box instead of a physical address.

(This announcement was originally posted by Carolyn Brewer to the NTLP-Directors email list on May 27, 2013.)

It is very bittersweet as I write this note for NTLP.  We are four days till final closing, turning in our keys and not coming to the office that I have now visited for nine years.  Thursday is final moving day and Friday is final employed day - we are now calling NTLP - Now Terminated Library Partners.  : (

Clearing the Office

Submitted by judy on

More than 40 North Texas libraries will be sending representatives to the NTLP office during the first four days of this week and taking away furniture, computers, and other equipment for use at their libraries.   The libraries responded to a survey posted by NTLP advertising the items for giveaway, and NTLP staff selected the recipients with the help of an online random number generator.
