UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA / STANFORD UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

AFRICAN AREA STUDIES COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT CONSORTIUM

 

ORGANIZATIONAL AGREEMENT

GOAL

To ensure that library materials for the study of Africa are available to scholars and students in the University of California and Stanford University. Other California institutions of higher education may be included in the future.

SCOPE

Activities may include, but are not limited to, projects involving cooperative collection development, materials preservation, and resource sharing.  The Consortium will prioritize its specific needs in these and other areas, and design projects and activities to meet those needs.  Members will share with the Consortium information relating to their libraries' collection policies and scope, including decisions to cease collecting specific materials.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership is voluntary and composed of selectors from the libraries of the University of California and Stanford University.  The membership may expand to include other California research libraries.

OFFICES

Convener: The Consortium will select from the membership a Convener who will convene the meetings, maintain a roster of members, and keep track of projects.

UC-CDC Liaison: One member of the UC Collection Development Committee will serve as Liaison between the Consortium and UC-CDC. 

The Convener will submit a written report on the group's activities through the Liaison to the Chair of UC-CDC by July 1 of each year.

PROJECT PARTICIPATION

Any member may suggest a project to the Consortium.  Participation in each project is voluntary and selective.  Each project will have a formal description, and members may choose to participate or not, according to the needs of each campus.  Participating members in each project will make a formal commitment to specific responsibilities to be carried out by their library.  The Convener will maintain documentation on each project.

MEETINGS

In order to minimize travel costs, meetings may be arranged in conjunction with other conferences attended by members, whenever possible.  The group will also communicate by alternative means, including telephone and electronic mail.
