Community College Library Consortium Report– James Wiser Consortium Director
Fall renewal forms will be available in the CCLC procurement system no later than October 1, and I will send a notification email to the official contact I have on file for colleges when their library’s forms are ready to access. The deadline for returning these signed forms to the CCLC office will be Friday, November 11th. Renewals are not conveyed to vendors automatically; while I will send reminders to those colleges for whom I have not received forms, after November 11th I will begin working with vendors on contracts and if your form was not sent to the League office I will not be renewing your library’s databases. If you have difficulty accessing or printing out your renewal forms, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help.
New offers for the fall term are updated and are live on the Consortium web site. Note that the deadline for placing any new orders is also November 11th, though we can usually prorate any new subscription to align with the League’s contract term. This fall we are pleased to introduce five new offers to the CCL community:
n ACLS Humanities EBooks
n APA Style Central
n Naxos Music Library
To learn more about these offers, visit the consortium website at http://www.cclibraries.org and use the generic username (“cclibrary”) and password to access the current offer. If you do not know the password to access the offer, feel free to send me an email.
For librarians interested in attending the 2016 Internet Librarian conference in Monterey on October 17-19, CCL has been given a discount code for registration. That code may be accessed here: https://secure.infotoday.com/RegForms/internetlibrarian/?Priority=CCL16.
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for possible new database offers, please contact me. Have a great fall semester!
