All,

Just want to touch base about Orlando.  If you won't be attending, please let Heather and I know.  

Our program is Saturday, 3pm at Orange County Convention Center Room S330 C-D.  We may need greeters etc, so if you are available and can arrive about 230pm, that would be great.  Heather please let us know if you see additional needs.  I'm happy to make myself available.

Our meeting will be at 9am on Sunday (I'll be there at 830 to greet anyone who might come).  It will be at the Rosen Centre Room Salon 18.  At this point, I don't have any agenda items but might suggest:

- After action review of our program

- Discuss next two years (committee members, new and leaving etc)

- Next steps

Please let me know if you have anything additional.

Thanks,

Dennis

All,

I would like to plan a conference call so we can plan for Mid-Winter and talk about our Program.  It has been hard finding a time for Heather and I to be available at the same time, but I have a doodle poll with some times we can do.  These are in Eastern time.  Please complete it as soon as you can so I can schedule the call.  Guests are welcome as well so feel free to pass along.

Sharing Our Collections : Looking to the Future (2012 ALA Annual Program)

Sunday June 24
10:30AM-12:00PM

http://ala12.scheduler.ala.org/node/674

Cooperative and consortial resource sharing is blurring the lines between Circulation, Access Services, and Interlibrary Loan as libraries find new ways to share collections and create efficiencies.  This session will look at the future of consortia: shared e-book collections, floating collections, cloud-based integrated library systems, and the need to be increasingly flexible and collaborative to meet the opportunities and challenges of the future.

The Next Generation ILS : How will it support collection sharing in the future?    

Carmit Marcus, Ex Libris Director of Product Management and Partnerships
ILS Vendor representative                

Carmit Marcus from Ex Libris will describe what is envisioned for next generation Information Systems and answer some of our questions about them. Carmit will use her experience as one of the developers of the Alma cloud-based ILS to explain how these systems are evolving to keep up with today’s technological advances.

This session will answer such questions as:  why the cloud? How will these systems differ from the ones we have been using? How will they better support efforts to share our collections? And perhaps most importantly, how will they change our library workflows and enhance our services?

At the end of this program, participants will have a better understanding of evolving library systems that support consortial borrowing.

Flexibility and Collaboration: Floating Collections in the Arapahoe Library District

Janet Schneider, Manager of Smoky Hill and Eloise May Libraries, Programming, and Customer Service
Public Library consortia member

The Arapahoe Library District was looking for ways to stretch their collection development budget without significantly impacting customer service. Floating collections was one idea that was identified to would address this need. Janet Schneider will discuss how flexibility and collaboration were their keys to successful innovation, and can be yours as well.

Floating collections in a multi-facility library system allows the patrons to shape the collections at their home library through the materials they check out and return to that library via the holds process. There are other advantages to the floating collection concept as well as some challenges and requirements that need to be in place for successful implementation.

At the end of this program, participants will have a vision of where consortial borrowing is going in the future, and what they need to know (and do!) to take advantage of the opportunities and overcome challenges.

Ebook collection sharing : the Orbis Cascade Demand Driven Acquisitions Project

Linda Di Biase, Collection Development Librarian
Academic Library consortia member

Linda Di Biase will provide an overview of the groundbreaking Demand Driven Acquisitions (DDA) cooperative e-book purchasing pilot project that the Orbis Cascade Alliance has implemented in collaboration with EBL and YBP.

As the demand for electronic books grows and our collections shift from print to electronic, we search for models that will allow sharing of e-book content as libraries have traditionally done with print ILL.  One model has been successfully piloted by the Orbis Cascade Alliance, using a demand-driven mode where patron behavior determines what is collectively owned.

At the end of this program, participants will know more about this innovative approach to sharing ebook collections and what the DDA Project Team has learned from the project thus far.
