ALA's ASCLA Division Announces Collaborative Digitization Interest Group

This was recently posted by Liz Bishoff to some listservs I follow: 

This year the Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA) reorganized to realize improved efficiencies and reflecting the interests of members.  As part of the reorganization, the ASCLA Sections were eliminated.  Discussion groups were converted to interest groups.  As a result of this change, ASCLA is inviting ALA members to join the new interest groups.  This process is very easy, using ALAConnect.

We welcome anyone involved in or interested in collaborative Digitization programs/projects to join the interest group.

ASCLA ICAN (InterLibrary Cooperation & Networking) Collaborative Digitization Interest Group:

Collaborative Digitization Group Interest Group for library cooperatives which are combinations, mergers, or contractual associations of one or more types of libraries (academic, public, special, or school) crossing jurisdictional, institutional, or political boundaries, working together to achieve maximum effective use of funds to provide library and information services to all citizens above and beyond those which can be provided through one institution. Such cooperative organizations or agencies may be designated to serve a community, a metropolitan area, a region within a region, or may serve a statewide or multi-state area.
