Work Groups Update and Surveys
We Want to
Hear from You!
System Work Groups have worked with the DALNET Office to
online surveys for selecting and ranking importance of criteria
for selecting a new system. The surveys, each covering a work
area within the system, such as circulation, cataloging, and
acquisitions, will be distributed this month and available to staff
members at DALNET institutions. The DALNET office will be
scheduling site visits to institutions that would like assistance with
helping staff members to fill out the survey, and to give an overview
of the process for selecting a new system, which the work groups are
currently participating in. The DALNET office will also work
institutions that need access to the surveys after July. Once
surveys are completed, the DALNET office will work with the system work
groups to analyze the results, which will be presented in a final
report to the DALNET Board of Directors in November.

|The State of Reference Collections
This article by Elisabeth Leonard
explores how the definition of reference is changing, in part because
reference resources now look and feel like other information sources
and because other information resources perform the traditional purpose
of reference - answering research questions.
