Keep up to Date on CTST activities
All of the 2013 Acquisitions Working Group minutes are posted now. Take a look!

Do you have an Alliance-related technical services presentation or publication coming up? Let me know so I can share it!

Article of Interest
If you are interested in thinking about how consortium's can collaborate for technical services work, see the latest issue of Library Resources & Technical Services (v. 57, i. 4, Oct. 2013). The article "Shared Resources, Shared Records: Letting Go of Local Metadata Hosting within a Consortium Environment" provides and interesting example of dividing batch loading responsibilities between institutions.
