A big thanks to everyone who turned out for the Collaborative Technical Services Symposium on Wednesday! Despite many challenges facing the symposium, we pulled off a very well attended and engaged meeting.

I will be compiling all of the notes taken at the Symposium and sharing them. We will be using the suggestions and ideas to focus our work within the Collaborative Technical Services Team (CTST), to revise the relevant areas on our website, and plan future conversations.

If you attended the Symposium, please fill out our evaluation:http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LYJYPTX

In the interest of sharing current policy conversations, here is the list of policies and procedures currently under discussion in CTST:
- Record overlay in Alma's Network Zone
- Record suppression in Alma
- Bound-withs management in Alma
- English language of cataloging
- Minimum acquisitions data policy
- Standardizing, streamlining acquisitions workflows

We will communicate more about these when they are ready for distribution.
