Cheery Greetings

The Board and Advisory Committees had a productive and engaging Retreat this morning, with the goal being to start making the Plan of Service more actionable. Stay tuned!

In the last edition of the News, I began highlighting some of our programs and services. Today I’ll mention Resource Sharing. When we hear “resource sharing,” we can automatically think “interlibrary loan;” and yet as we know, it is broader. For example, the Coordinated Collection Development Aid for Academic Libraries (CCDA) Program falls within Resource Sharing because they acquire resources within a specific subject area to then share and avail to the region. Digital Collections Access also falls within Resource Sharing.
A couple components that pertain to interlibrary loan are the Bibliographic & Referral Center (BARC) and the Medical Information Service Program (MISP).

BARC is a service that can be used for last-resort interlibrary loan and also for regional Union List of Serials maintenance. It is available to all members without full OCLC access.
MISP funds are available to any library or library system that has a health or medical interlibrary loan request, for which they incur a fee from a library within the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) or even a library outside of NNLM--it just has to be medical or health-related. For occasional requests, send the invoice to SCRLC for payment by mail or scan. If scanning, email it to Danna Harris. If you have several requests a year being filled by the NNLM resource libraries, you can set up an Electronic Funds Transfer Service (EFTS) account—contact Molly Brown for details.
Yours in partnership,
Mary-Carol Lindbloom
Executive Director
