Volunteers Still Needed for CTST Task Forces

Collaborative Technical Services Team is initiating two new task forces to tackle record loading planning and testing. Thanks to those who volunteered for the Marcive Documents without Shelves Task Force. We will be finalizing the membership roster shortly.

We still need 1-2 more volunteers for a Vendor Record Match Point Task Force, led by Bob Thomas (Western Washington). The work will wrap up in December, so this is a short term commitment. If you are interested in hearing more, contact me at kfountain@orbiscascade.org.

DDA Title Update for Cohort 4

OCLC has not yet produced the delete file for the nearly 5000 titles removed from the DDA program on August 1st. Cohort 4 libraries will have outdated records in their library systems until that file is produced by OCLC and communicated out by Linda Ackers. The working group had hoped to avoid this, and I am putting pressure on OCLC to produce this file ASAP.
