Colleagues,

FYI, here's the University of Washington's statement of institutional support for our Coop Collection Development workshop and project.

We hope to see many more in the week of June 2, so that plans can move forward.

Happy long weekend,

Bronwen

Subject: University of Washington Commitment to Participate in Cooperative Collection Development for South Asia Partnership Workshop

James (and Mary and Bronwen) -- this is in response to CRL's Call for
Participants for the Cooperative Collection Development in South Asia
Partnership Workshop scheduled for October 15th in Madison.

I would like to confirm that the University of Washington Libraries is
interested in exploring cooperative collection development for South Asian
materials and is prepared to consider reallocating a portion of the South
Asian studies acquisitions budget (but not less than the $1000 minimal
commitment mentioned in the Call) for a national cooperative plan. We also
commit to providing the necessary travel funding.

(Given the June 1st response deadline and the Memorial Day holiday, email
seemed the most practical way to respond. If you would also like me to send
a letter to this effect on UW Libraries letterhead, please just let me
know.)

Best wishes,

Tim
