New: CEAL Technical Services Expertise List

Expertise List | Expertise Survey | CTP

Dear Colleagues,
At the 2013 CEAL Annual Meeting, the idea was raised that the Committee on Technical Processing (CTP) should gather cataloging expertise information from CEAL members, so that it would be easier for CEAL members to find colleagues with special skills for consultation or collaboration. As a result, the Committee on Technical Processing worked with the Membership Committee to gather information on the technical services expertise of CEAL members.

We are pleased to announce that the survey results are available from the link below. We would like to thank Rob Britt (Library Technology Committee) for providing the technical support.
CEAL Technical Services Expertise List
The survey results will also be linked on the CTP webpage.

We hope this list will be a valuable resource for colleagues seeking technical services expertise among the CEAL membership.

We will keep the survey open so anyone who wants to be included or wants to update information can do so by clicking here. Please note that we will continue to maintain this list.

Please send any questions or correction requests to Mieko Mazza and Keiko Suzuki.

Thank you again for responding to the cataloging expertise survey.
