Collaborative Technical Services Team (2010)



Please consult the History of Collaborative Technical Services page for all information about CTST and it's work.


The charge of the Team consists of the following initiatives in the technical services arena:

  • Guidelines: implement a Shared Best Practices working group to develop guidelines for effective technical services policies and operations that support the Alliance goal of a shared ILS
  • EBooks: implement a working group to develop technical services operations that support collaborative cataloging/processing for EBook collections.  This working group should coordinate their work with that of the EBook Team
  • Difficult Foreign Language Material: implement a core group of libraries committed to a pilot project to organize an exchange of expertise for collaborative cataloging of Difficult Foreign Language Material; and
  • Federal Documents: implement a core group of libraries committed to a pilot project to organize an exchange of expertise for collaborative cataloging and identification of Pre-1976 Federal Documents Holdings in the Alliance.
  • Assessment of work and recommendations concerning next steps
