Call for OCLC Global Council Candidate Nominations (Deadline 11/17)

(via Mary Konkel, College of DuPage)

Did you know that as an OCLC member, your voice matters? You play an important role in the development of products and services and in shaping the direction of the OCLC cooperative. This work is accomplished by the OCLC Global and Regional Councils, which represent your voice and the voices of all member libraries.

As an OCLC member, you can nominate yourself for an open delegate position on your Regional Council. This year, the Americas Regional Council (ARC) is seeking librarians to run for 13 delegate seats. Candidates must currently work in an OCLC member organization that held active OCLC member status as of June 2018, and they must have a leadership position in their institution.

Elected candidates will:

  • Play an active role identifying ways to engage regionally with other OCLC members and channel member feedback
  • Embrace the opportunity to shape the direction of the cooperative by participating in discussions (in English) with and making recommendations to OCLC leadership

Let your voice be heard. Apply for an open ARC delegate position and represent other OCLC members. Submit your applicationby 17 November 2018.

Want to learn more about the Global and Regional Councils? Access the OCLC Global Council Handbook for information on the Global and Regional Councils and delegate roles, responsibilities, and activities. You can also contact the OCLC Member Relations team at memberrelations@oclc.org with questions.

(via Anne Craig, CARLI Senior Director)

It is with great pleasure that I make the following announcement:

Ex Libris Alma has been chosen for our next I-Share platform! Alma will replace Voyager and SFX in 2020 for the 91 institutions that are part of CARLI’s I-Share resource sharing system. We look forward to Alma helping CARLI extend and expand the resource sharing and collaborative programs that our consortium has offered our members for almost 40 years.

Please join me in expressing deep appreciation and thanks to the tireless and most extraordinary members of the I-Share Next Task Force. Task force members spent four years on this project, shaping member input and aspirations into a highly detailed, thorough, and complex RFP that was issued and awarded through the University’s procurement process. They persevered through many challenges and stayed on course, worked through weekends and holidays, and have now secured a wonderful new service for our membership. We all owe them great praise for their contributions to our consortium, dividends that will be paid for many years to come. I am especially grateful to Kristine Hammerstrand, Chair of the I-Share Next Task Force, for her unfailing devotion to this project and its successful conclusion.
