A Community Advisory Board for Collections Management


A recent paper circulated to the lis-collection-mgmt@jiscmail.ac.uk email discussion list outlined new developments in the role of the former Copac Collection Management Tools Board.

As announced by Ruth Elder at the CM@ Bristol event in February 2016, the Board considered that as a group with a broader remit it could provide a valuable role to the community: to encompass facilitating the sharing of good practice and development of skills as well as representing the views of the community in the increasingly dynamic and evolving realm of collection management.  To reflect this change the Board has been re-named: Jisc Collection Management Community Advisory Board (CMCAB)

You can read the full paper here: Collection Management Advice and Oversight May 2016, which also describes the provision of strategic oversight to Jisc in the area of Bibliographic Data Services and how this links to the work of the CMCAB.

We welcome feedback and comments from the community, so please add a comment to this post, email lis-collection-mgmt@jiscmail.ac.uk with your thoughts or contact Diana Massam, CCM Tools project manager at Diana.Massam@jisc.ac.uk

The Board will discuss this feedback and also the best mechanisms for gathering broader input into its activities at our next meeting in July 2016.

Thanks.
