The Systems Team provides broad oversight and leadership for technologies used by Alliance programs, teams, and members.

The Council member from each member institution designates one Representative that the Systems Team will consult for voting and formal input on issues. Representatives speak for the entire member institution. Thus each Representative is expected to gather input from all relevant divisions, branches, autonomous libraries, etc.

Systems Team Representatives: Expectations
Institutional representatives play an essential role in the Alliance's network of team structures. We have the following expectations for members serving in this role:
  1. Representatives will attend as many Systems Team Open Calls as possible. When not possible, representatives will review the Systems Team Open Call recording.
  2. Representatives will communicate information discussed at Systems Team Open Calls and relevant listservs to their institutional colleagues.
  3. Calendar of open calls. These are generally held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, at 1pm.

The below staff will be the primary contact for their institution for matters from the Systems Team.
