Hi Erin,

Thank you for mentioning the ALCTS e-Forums!

We definitely welcome topic suggestions for future forums. Topics are ultimately selected by the two co-coordinators and we typically try to keep the topics relevant and avoid repeating topics that were recently discussed. The person(s) recommending a topic are not obligated to lead the discussion, but can suggest possible discussion moderators.

Everyone is welcome to suggest topics by sending a message to this email address: alcts-eforum-request at lists.ala.org<mailto:alcts-eforum-request at lists.ala.org> or by contacting one of the coordinators directly.

We are looking for topics for late spring and early summer and will add this one to our list!

Thank you!

Alana Nuth & Dan Tam Do
ALCTS e-Forum Coordinators

Hello Melissa,

While the university as a whole and our IT department have policies, we do not have library-specific policies. I did some investigation of local libraries a year / year-and-a-half ago and found that most of the libraries near us also relied on their university's / IT department's policies.

That said, I think this would be an excellent idea for an ALCTS eForum discussion ( See http://www.ala.org/alcts/confevents/upcoming/e-forum ). eForums are free for anyone to participate in and the website has a page where you can propose a topic. I am not certain how topics are selected or if the person proposing the topic needs to lead the discussion, but I am sure the coordinators would be willing to fill in those details.
