Type of Group and General Comments
Teams can form ad hoc working groups that are chaired by a team member with membership drawn from staff at member libraries. Selected working groups might also include non-members. For example, a working group concerned with the courier might include non-member participants. Joint Working Groups may be formed by the Board and assigned to a lead team.

The formation of a Joint Working Group was approved at the 2015 June 4 meeting and the charge was approved at the 2015 September 3 meeting of the Policy & Coordination Team.

Purpose: Support top-priority goals of the CCD Team for FY16: Aggregate unique Alliance digital content, facilitating discovery of unique materials in the SILS Shared Primo space
