The Collaborative Technical Services Team is charged with building on the work of the previous CTS Team by

  1. Refining and implementing the recommendations of the Bibliographic Standards Best Practices Working Group (BP1)
  2. Working with Alliance staff to create an inventory of automated cataloging/acquisitions practices (BP2)
  3. Overseeing two pilot projects
    • Ebooks: cataloging consortial purchases associated with the Ebook Pilot pursued by the Collection Development and Management Committee (EB1)
    • Cataloging monographs in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages (FL2)
  4. Investigate member need for specialized cataloging expertise (e.g. maps cataloging) and provide recommendations concerning an appropriate financial and organizational model.
  5. Organizing a Collaborative Technical Services Symposium to discuss current thinking in the profession, learn about the status of similar collaborative technical services efforts undertaken by other consortia, and discuss the results of Alliance pilots.
  6. Recommending next steps.
