Based on a number of recent conversations concerning the upcoming ILLiad-Tipasa migration, ASERL is convening a new Working Group to examine options for the future of Resource Sharing technologies.
PURPOSE: The general charge is to determine a recommend path or paths for ASERL libraries to undertake as ILLiad becomes no longer available to manage our significant ILL traffic. At the moment, those options could include a recommendation that ASERL libraries move to a different technology (e.g., RAPID-R, Relais D2D, Alma, etc), or develop a set of Tipasa service/functional requirements to be submitted to OCLC, or something in between.
TIMELINE: Ideally, the recommendation(s) would be drafted, reviewed, and submitted for ASERL library deans/directors to consider at the ASERL meeting at the end of November 2018. Sooner would be better, if possible.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We seek 7-10 ASERL members to participate in this effort, including someone to serve as Chairperson. A few people have already volunteered – our thanks to James Harper (Wake Forest Univ), Michael Hunter (George Mason Univ), and Renee Morefield (UNC Charlotte). If this is of interest, please reply to me at jburger [at] aserl.org at your earliest opportunity.
