Tech Services Workflow Efficiency Interest Group - ALA Annual Program

The ALCTS Technical Services Workflow Efficiency Interest Group* presents the following program:

Sharing the Shelf : A Look at Print Retention and Shared Archive Initiatives
Monday, June 27, 2011, 1:30pm – 3:30 pm
Morial Convention Center room 342 (MCC- 342)

 Shared print archive initiatives are on the rise nationally. Many leading libraries and consortia view the long-term stewardship of print journals as an important part of electronic migration and preservation for future research and scholarship. Additionally, libraries benefit from shared costs and cooperative management and storage of these materials.  Consortia are particularly well-placed to coordinate strategic and economical efforts to archive and manage critical print serial collections.

Please join the group as we host a panel discussion to explore issues and challenges related to the cooperative planning and implementation of these vital initiatives. 

 Our panelists are:

Aisha Harvey, Head, Collection Development, Duke University (ASERL)

Karen Wilhoit, Associate University Librarian for Collections, Wright State University (OhioLINK)


*Please also consider serving as the next vice chair for this interest group. 
For more information, please contact co-chairs Dracine Hodges (hodges.368@osu.edu) or Megan Dazey (megan.dazey@mso.umt.edu)
