Subject: Call for Volunteers -- ASERL Working Group on the Future of Resource 
Sharing Technologies

ASERL Friends:

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 mailto:jburger [at] aserl.org at your earliest 
opportunity.

Thank you.
