Letter from the President

Hi all,

Thanks to the team that made the Deans and Directors meeting in Sacramento in March go so well. We had a great time coming together after missing several years and it was great to see so many friends and colleagues in one place. I look forward already to next year’s event. I hope everyone thought it worth their time to come and had safe travel to and from.

Hello CCC librarians,

By Gregg Atkins, CCL Executive Director

CCL first began discussing the idea of a shared ILS almost 10 years ago!  We talked and talked and talked among ourselves.

And then we talked with others:  people in the Chancellor’s Office, technology leaders in the CCC world, stakeholders (think ASCCC, students, CIOs, the League … and so many more), other groups of libraries headed in the same direction.

In the wake of tragic fires in both Northern and Southern California and flooding and mudslides compounding an already monumental challenge, I draw comfort and inspiration from family, friends and community who step up to the most difficult circumstances, giving not only resources and time, but also sharing emotional strength and courage with those who need it the most.
