This year’s theme is “Lives Change @Your Library”.

We use NLW  to reach out to our stakeholders in our transportation agencies and show off our services and value to the organization. This year the pooled fund members organize their own events and have brand new TKN brochures to hand out. They look fantastic and we’re very proud of this 2014 project. Check them out!

We have three cataloging projects going on this year – Illinois, New Mexico and North Carolina are using pooled funds to get backlog materials cataloged and into their local systems and OCLC. These projects will have a big impact on local access for researchers and resource sharing among libraries.

Speaking of cataloging, have you voted in the poll below for a pooled fund subscription to Cataloger’s Desktop?
