Committee Update: Planned 2013 Annual Program

The RUSA CODES/STARS Cooperative Collection Development committee is currently working on a program scheduled for Saturday, June 29, 1-2:30pm during ALA Annual 2013.

Title: Enhancing services through integration of Interlibrary Loan and Acquisitions

Description:

This panel will explore the opportunities and challenges that arise from merging interlibrary loan and acquisitions departments, as well as the administrative aspects of such a partnership. Through examining the reasons why ILL/Acquisitions mergers may be beneficial, and hearing from peers engaged in the process, attendees will gain an understanding of how to weigh the merits of such an arrangement and determine if it is appropriate for their institution, as well as hear insights on how to move forward. This session is appropriate for all library types.
