All: As some of you have learned, OCLC is restricting participation in this webinar to Research Library Partnership (RLP, formerly RLG) member libraries only. I was unaware of this restriction when I posted the original message yesterday; my apologies for the confusion. I have asked my counterparts at RLP to reconsider this decision. So far, they are not budging. I have asked them to re-reconsider, making clear my displeasure with this policy. I am not optimistic they will change their minds, so we will work to offer a similar session using our webinar system in the near future, which would be open to all (as is our SOP). The OCLC webinar recording will eventually be available via the public OCLC website as well. Despite these frustrations, I was pleased to see the level of interest and engagement on this topic among our membership. Definitely worth future explorations! Please stay tuned on this developing issue, and let me know any other questions. Thank you. --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) c/o Robert W.

You may know that the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) recently published similar guidelines. (See http://www.btaa.org/about/news-and-publications/news/2018/04/19/big-ten-libraries-create-framework-for-sharing-special-collections for information about BTAA's program.) As a first step in exploring these options within ASERL, I encourage those of you who are interested in attend a webinar hosted by OCLC Research which will discuss BTAA's efforts as well as others. See https://www.oclc.org/research/events/2018/05-30.html for details about the webinar. WEBINAR: "Works in Progress: Sharing Special Collections Materials via Resource Sharing" DATE / TIME: May 30, 2018 | 11am ET / 10am Central Time REGISTER: https://www.oclc.org/research/events/2018/05-30.html As always, I welcome your feedback on this idea. Thanks for your support of ASERL. --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) c/o Robert W.
