work provides opportunities for service, achievement, and development.
In addition to the Board of Directors and Project Manager groups, DALNET
has currently identified the Cataloging & Database Standards Committee,
the Cost Allocation Task Force, and the Reciprocal Borrowing Committee to
do work this fiscal year. To volunteer for one (or more) DALNET committees,
