Vi har endnu nogle få pladser ledige på studierejsen til USA, så om du
har
lyst at følge med, skal du være velkommen. Her er det foreløbige
program. I
Seattle vil der også blive besøg hos enten Amazon eller Serials
Solutions -
vi arbejder på sagen.

Venlig hilsen

1. The library courier that serves the entire state of Colorado is run
out
of an office in the Denver metro area, the Colorado Library Consortium.
The
Executive Director, Valerie Horton, is a national expert on library
delivery
systems and is the editor of a book on library delivery systems that
will be
published shortly by ALA.  She runs a clearinghouse on information about
delivery systems:  http://www.clicweb.org/movingmountains/.  The
Colorado
Library Courier delivers several million items annually to hundreds of
libraries of Horton and get a tour of the central sorting facility that their
commercial
carrier uses. While her experience is with the U.S.,  talking with her
and
her carrier would be useful to think about how to find ways to make
systems
more efficient and cut down on delivery time in general.

2.  PASCAL (the Preservation and Access Service Center for Colorado
Academic
Libraries) is a state of the art high density library storage facility
located in Denver. The facility is shared by 4 academic libraries, will
hold
up to 1.6 million volumes, and is climate controlled.  Primarily low use
materials are stored there, but since PASCAL is served by the statewide
library courier, users can place a hold on materials and have it
delivered
to them at their home library in 24 to 48 hours after it is requested.
We
will have a tour and presentation about their facility.

3. The Colorado State Library has several statewide resource sharing
initiatives. They run a reciprocal borrowing program called Colorado
Libraries Collaborate.  All public libraries, most academic libraries,
and
many school and special libraries in the state participate.  A user can
take
their home library card and walk into any participating library in the
state
and check out materials. http://www.clc-key.org/ . The State Library
runs an
installation of OCLC's VDX system called SWIFT that supports the
interlibrary loan activities of around 365 libraries throughout the
state.
http://www.aclin.org/swift/   We will visit and talk with their staff
about
these programs.

4. Visit the Bibliographic Center for Research (BCR) where we will meet
president and CEO
 Brenda Bailey-Hainer.  BCR serves over 8,000 libraries of all types,
primarily in the Western
 U.S. They are in the process of setting up a high volume digitization
facility in their  office that
 will be completed in January 2009.  www.bcr.org

The order of these visits is not yet decided. More visits in Denver may
be
added.
