[Sacapcooperation-l] reminders and heads-up

Sep
24

Colleagues,

We are getting close to the Madison Conference, the CONSALD and SACAP
meetings and our cooperative workshop! I hope you all have been able to
make your travel plans and arrangements and that you haven't been too
put-out by the expected crowds for the UW vs. Ohio State football game!

This message has two goals: a pesky reminder and a heads-up about
pre-workshop homework.

[Consald-l] Shalini Urs

Sep
22

Dear All,
Have we ever thought of inviting colleagues from South Asia in our
CONSALD meetings? May be Dr. Shalini Urs can come to Madison Conference.
Though it is kind of late now. Just a thought ... May be in the future
we can tap into the expertise/scholarship of people from South Asia by
providing them a platform to speak and share at either Madison
Conference or AAS.
Thanks,
bindu

[Sacapcooperation-l] Cooperative Collections Workshop

Sep
08

Colleagues,

The Cooperative Collections Workshop is just around the corner! As a
reminder, we'll meet on Friday, October 15th from 9:00-1:00 in UW's
Memorial Library room 362. James, Bronwen and I are in the process of
putting together the agenda for the workshop which we will distribute
soon--stay tuned!

The next deadline for our group is to share our FY2010-2011 profiles by
October 1st. If you have already made your FY2010-2011 profile
decisions, please do forward your profile code sheets to me so I can
begin collating them, etc. Scans of the profiles that you send to LC
would work fine--no need to actually key anything in just for this.

Over the past few weeks, I have been working on a spreadsheet of all of
our LC-India profiles for FY2009-2010 (attached here and available on
our website at
http://www.library.wisc.edu/guides/SoAsia/cooperation.htm). Please look
through the spreadsheet and let me know if you see major discrepancies
or errors. The hope is that we could use a tool like this to help us
identify areas of duplication or conversely of minimal support and to
explore the implications of profile changes on our budgets.

In preparation for our workshop next month, do begin thinking about
which categories you might be willing to give up and which you might be
interested in picking up to get each institution to the agreed upon
financial commitments. In terms of disciplines, an example that might be
helpful is the division of labor that Cornell and Columbia made
recently. Columbia continues to collect literature in the local
languages; Cornell has given up Indian regional literature and picked up
social sciences instead. Does your institution have a strength that you
can make into your library's specialty?

We also need to begin thinking about questions such as "how many is
enough/too much at the national level?" or "should we think regionally
about collaboration," etc. Obviously we'll be working through these and
other questions during the workshop but it's good to begin thinking
through them soon.

Best, and more soon!
Mary

Subject: [Consald-l] Alan Grosenheider's new appointment

 

CONSALD members,

 

I would like to inform all of you of my new interim
appointment at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library as
Associate University Librarian for Administration. 

 

My new portfolio includes Facilities, Fiscal, Personnel,
Planning, Training & Development and--at least for now--Systems.  So,
while I have enjoyed following South Asia library issues for the last three
years and serving as the virtual member of ALA/ALCTS/CCS's Committee on
Cataloging: Asian & African Materials, I believe no longer have the time
while I focus upon these new responsibilites.

 

Please work with CC:AAM Chair,

Hikaru
Nakano [cc'd] hiknaka@uflib.ufl.edu on identifying a
replacement for me.  I served as a virtual member since the standing
meeting for CC:AAM occurred at the same time as the standing meeting of my
LLAMA committee and it was easy enough to provide input on the proposals via
email as needed.  Perhaps they will entertain another virtual membership
again.  Feel free to contact me if I may help in this transition.

 

Without having contacted Phil Melzer or Allen Thrasher about
this idea, I will broach a possibility for you to consider:  since much of
the South Asia cataloging is performed by the Library of Congress perhaps LoC's
representative to CC:AAM can also serve as the liaison between CC:AAM and
CONSALD or some similar creative solution to guarantee your input on cataloging
policies and standards that affect access to South Asia library materials?

 

It was a pleasure working with you during the decade I was
at the University of Washington and for the last three years that I have been
here at the University of Hawaii at Manoa as I served as the Assistant to the
University Library; I learned much from listening to you and appreciated all
the good times together while dining on Indian food.  And, I hope to
see all of you next year at AAS here in Honolulu! 

 

with warmest aloha,

Alan

 

p.s. And, Mary, I noted on the website that you are managing
the listserv; would you please remove my email?
