Update: FY22-23 Courier Estimates

Man unloading bins from truck

The Courier Team has initiated the annual process of sending out courier cost estimates. Those should be showing up in your email inboxes starting September 23. If you have an urgent need for your library’s estimate, please email courierhelp@clicweb.org and we’ll work to expedite that document.

Pause for a moment and think about the impact of statewide resource sharing. Here’s a quote from a Western Slope library patron about why statewide resource sharing is so important, “I am an avid reader, usually having at least 2 books on my reading table, as well as one audio book in my car for commuting and another audio book in my house for distraction during housework and exercising. I always have several materials on my Hold list (today I have 8). I am so grateful for the courier service that brings me materials from our District, as well as outside it. In fact, my life would be so much drearier without it!

That right there is why we do all the work that makes statewide resource sharing happen!

ACDC Advantage Plus

ACDC Advantage Plus

Name(Required)
Do you want ACDC to join Advantage Plus?(Required)
This will allow for:
1. Advantage members to share eligible titles from their collections with the shared collection while maintaining a priority on holds for their own users.
a. Shared titles will still belong to the Advantage member. Users of any library or school in the shared collection can borrow or place holds on these titles, but Advantage users will have priority for holds.
b. Titles with active checkouts or holds can be shared if the Advantage Plus plan allows it.
c. All reports will show that the shared titles belong to the Advantage member. d. Your Collection Usage reports will include holds and checkouts for all users (shared collection and Advantage).
e. By default, MARC records won’t be ordered for shared titles.
f. In order to share a title, the shared collection must support the title's format.
2. Advantage Plus plans can either run automatically (sharing or moving all eligible titles every time they run), or the plan owner can choose to run their plan manually (so they can review eligible titles and choose which ones to share or move). This is done at the individual library.

LAFCON Scholarship

CLiC is offering scholarships for the first ever Library Advocacy and Funding Conference (LAFCON) hosted by EveryLibrary.  The conference is virtual, and runs September 26th-28th, 2022.

What’s exciting is this conference is specifically designed to bring new knowledge to libraries. That’s because you’ll be hearing almost exclusively from people and organizations outside of this industry. You won’t be hearing from the same library presenters and organizations that we see at most other library conferences. Instead, EveryLibrary has sought out presenters and curated a conference agenda that will bring you all new information and ideas.  Take a look at the LAFCON 2022 agenda.

Apply for the CLiC Scholarship below. Application DEADLINE is Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
