Strategic Agenda Initiatives Proposed

The Alliance Board and Council are beginning the process to review, prioritize, and assign workgroups to the strategic initiatives proposed by the various committees and teams. The Collection Development & Management Committee has submitted its recommendations for consideration. Please check them out!

Annual Ebook Working Group Submitted

Thank you to all who responded to the annual DDA survey. You will see the results in the Ebook Working Group's annual report and appendices. Ownership as a goal of the DDA program continued to receive wide support, and we also read requests to include more university press content. The Ebook Working Group will continue to use this feedback to evaluate the program and any potential changes.

New Alliance Website Launch Expected Soon    

Since before my time, the Alliance staff have been busily planning to launch a new website with a new content management system. With that will come a complete professional site redesign. We expect to launch in early March. In the meanwhile, we are madly migrating content.

Best,
Kathi
