Centralized Collaborative Technical Services Documentation
I am working to create a central site to reference for final policies, procedures, and workflows. You can see the Technical Services program page to see the work in progress. This page will link to documentation created by the CTS Team and point to important documentation in SILS Docs. Send your feedback to me.

Final policies for Overlay in Alma and In-Rocess Brief Bibliographic Records are posted on the program page.

Upcoming Presentations

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