RE: [ccaomlcaom] april meeting in san francisco
Forgot to mention, Emperor’s College has about 600 Serials (includes electronic and printed), 3,000 physical volumes of Books and 300 Audio-Visuals. 280 students are served, both Master’s and Doctoral Programs, and 1 part-time professional Librarian (20 hours per week) on site, 4 Student Assistants, 1 Bookstore/Library Manager. Currently, LibraryThing is used as Library cataloging software, but we plan to move to LibraryWorld sometime this summer.

thank you for your reply. i thought it would be useful to scope out the varying sizes and focuses of the libraries and have some sense of software used that might be useful as advice to new libraries.

As I wrote previously, I will attend the meeting in SF.
We have three campus libraries, so our details would be different than stand alone libraries.
I am curious, why do you need this information?
1 The library resources are well suited for the doctoral program. We added many materials in the past two years.
2 Each library has a librarian. Two are degreed medical librarians, one an graduate student
3. We have a website with over 200 internet based resources. www.pacificcollege. eduhttp:/ /pacificcollege. edu/library/ index.html
4. We have an Internet based system. Cybertoolsforlibrar ies, an integrated system that has multiple catalog capabilities for union access.
5.Total Resources of the three libraries are generally between 25,000 to 30,000, titles of books, journals, media, software, research materials, etc.
Library space and computer labs are sufficient, about 2500 sq ft. in SD, NY. I do not have sq ft of Chicago .
I will bring some information about Cybertools and will be happy to address any union catalog questions the group may have.

April 30 - May 3, 2008 at the Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco
DATE TIME EVENT LOCATION

Here is a suggested agenda:
1. Impact of doctoral program decisions on library resources.
2. Current awareness journal/resource materials: Can it all be done
3. Continued efforts at cooperation and mutual assistance.
4. Internet vs "Union" connections: Libraries sharing the same
software, e.g. Libraryworld, can share catalog records.
5. Overview of library sizes, collection, etc.
If you haven't yet done so, please let me know
some basic information about the library:
Number of titles, all topics; includes A/V and periodicals
Number of total physical volumes
Software used to catalog and manage the collection
number of staff
Professional librarian: on site?
number of students served
If you have additional agenda items or suggests for altering the
agenda, please let me know.
Hope to see many of you in San Francisco in April.
