ALA Midwinter Meeting Announcement: ALCTS/AADG

ALA Midwinter Meeting Announcement: ALCTS/AADG

The Automated Acquisitions and In Process Control Discussion Group is beginning to plan for the meeting in San Antonio. We solicit your suggestions and ideas about topics that might be profitable to discuss. Two items suggested this summer at annual were ERMs and federated
searching. We've also had a suggestion in a previous call for a discussion of interfaces between library systems and institutional accounting systems.

I know ERMs are a hot topic at the moment, although I suspect that there are plenty of other fora in which to discuss them. So, if this is of interest, please suggest how you would like to focus the discussion.

Federated searching for acquisitions work. Again, if this is a topic that you would like to hear more about, suggest what you might like to hear and perhaps recommend someone who is currently involved to help guide the discussion.

Accounting interfaces were covered to some extent at last mid-winter in Boston, so if you want to know more, let us know what.

Other topics are very welcome, so tell us what you want to hear about/talk about.

Katharine Treptow Farrell
Chair, AADG

Dan Miller
