by Caroline Saccucci on Thu, Feb 5, 2015 at 11:24 am

Hi Everyone,

Thank you to those of you who were able to brave the cold and join us in Chicago for ALA Midwinter 2015.  I mounted the presentation slides and handout from the discussion on the CIP E-books initiative and the proposed revisions to the CIP data block.

We want your feedback, especially for the proposed revisions to the CIP data block, even if you were unable to attend the meeting and hear the presentation.

I look forward to seeing more of you in San Francisco.
