TO: Circulation Liaisons

May 6, 2002

In the course of preparing for Aleph implementation, the Aleph Circulation Implementation Team has identified a number of areas that will require discussion and decision-making regarding using the Aleph circulation module and determining local policies and practices within each library.

To address these issues, OIS is forming the Aleph Implementation Circulation Managers Group (AICMG). We expect to hold monthly or twice-monthly meetings beginning this month and probably extending through the first six months of Aleph production. We assume that managers will want to consult with other library staff on these matters. During this period, we are suspending the bimonthly Circ Liaisons meetings for at least 6 months.
