Re: CUFTS Free! Open Access Collections Group: Call for Volunteers

** Action May be Required by Friday, September 21, 2007 **

BC ELN and SFU Library invite all CUFTS libraries to participate in an Open Access Collections Group. The purpose of this group is to collaborate on the development and maintenance of open access title lists for CUFTS (for link resolving through GODOT, and inclusion in A to Z journal lists for CJDB users). Lists created to date include the SFU-developed Open Access Journals and Free Government Serials, and the BC ELN-inspired Open Access Magazines.

For more information, please see the draft Terms of Reference, available for download from: http://www.eln.bc.ca/docs/view.php?id=368

It is anticipated that the group will communicate electronically, via an e-mail list and/or Forum. Title lists are collaboratively developed using Google Coop spreadsheets.

If you would like to participate in the group, please RSVP to Don Taylor, dstaylor@sfu.ca, by Friday, September 21, 2007.
