SHARE Annual Member fees
The invoices for FY2017 SHARE fees are being prepared and will be mailed sometime this week. Please note that the invoices will include your SHARE Member fee, SHARE Basic fees, Bibliographic and Cataloging Services fees (for MARC Report or Barcoding A fees only), and eResource fees, if your library has any. If you have any questions about any of your fees, please do not hesitate to contact Chris Dawdy.
A Tip from the SHARE Bibliographic Services staff
Sitting in on the last SHARE Bibliographic and Cataloging Standards meeting, I learned that at least one of the legacy systems required that if a library had the last copy of an item on a bibliographic record, they had to keep that item in the collection and database. I just thought you might like to know that is not the case in SHARE! If your copy is the only item on the bibliographic record, and you want to delete your item, you can delete both your item and the bibliographic record. Questions? Feel free to contact Joan Bauer, Edie Elliott, Shelley Stone, or any of the SHARE cataloging staff.
From the Members Matter meeting
Is your library in the Metro-East St. Louis area? Did you know you can request a bench suitable for outside your library from get to know m.e.? You can find all the information here.
