Let Me Count The Ways
What does your college get from that $150 CCL membership payment? Here are some but not all of the benefits:
- Workshops and the annual meeting
- The Outlook
- The work of CCL-EAR, the Library Consortium purchasing arrangement, and the free CountryWatch database</li>
- The two listservs
- The participation by CCL in the implementation of Ex Libris, and the development of the ongoing governance & organizational structure
- The seats which CCL has at the Chancellor’s Office – Library Advisory Committee, Telecommunications and Technology Committee – and liaison role with the CIO Executive Board
- The liaison position with the ASCCC Executive Committee
- General work and effort to make the world safe for the CCC libraries!
Now, something new! CCL is paying the 2020 ELUNA membership of $235 (more about ELUNA elsewhere in this issue) for every library which has paid its 2019-20 membership. ELUNA helps direct the ongoing improvements and upgrades to Alma and Primo. And the 110 CCC libraries – with about 20% of the total vote – will have a big impact on ELUNA!
