This message is being posted to multiple lists.  Please excuse any

At the upcoming ALA annual conference, the ALCTS Serials Section
Committee to Study Serials Standards will be meeting at on Monday, June
26, from 4:30-5:30, MCC-E253 B.  At this meeting, the second of our two
meetings at the conference, we will be discussing what we should be doing
at future meetings: what aspects of the subject "serials standards"
should be discussed? who should we invite to attend our meetings?  etc.

meeting and share your ideas, you will be a welcome participant.  If you
have ideas but will not be at the meeting, please send them to me via E-mail
and I will bring them to the meeting on your behalf.  (Please remember to

ALCTS Technical Services Administrators of Medium Sized Research Libraries
Discussion Group

Saturday, June 24, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Swissotel, Alpine Ballroom 2

Topic:  The Stanford University Libraries Redesign Report!

Speakers:  Catherine M. Tierney, Acting Assistant University Librarian for
Technical Services, Stanford University Libraries, and compiler for the
Redesign Team of the Report; assisted by Karen Kalinsky, Head of Acquisitions
and member of the Redesign Team; and representatives from four of the vendors
with whom Stanford has had discussions: Dan Halloran, Academic Books; Allan
Graham, BNA; Liz Bishoff, OCLC; and Gary Shirk, Yankee Book Peddler.

Highlights:  Catherine Tierney will provide an update on the current status
and implementation of the Redesign Report and cover the content of the Report,
concepts widely applicable to other libraries (vendor-assisted processing of
monographs, process changes 1-3), significant issues these raise for all
libraries, internal issues, and external issues with vendors and utilities.
Following questions from the audience, each vendor will react to Ms. Tierney's
comments and present their views of the implications of these massive changes
for libraries, vendors, library/vendor and vendor/vendor relationships. Their
focus will include topics such as changes in pricing models, what a library
can reasonably expect to save, how outsourcing demands are changing vendor
operations, vendor concerns in meeting the new and increasingly complex needs
of libraries, the new nature of cooperation and competition between vendors.
Audience questions will follow.

Tip:  Before the program, read the Stanford Redesign Report on the Web at:  Other
related documents will be found on the Web in this area as well.
