  • Scandinavian (report from Annual meeting)

    At the June meeting in Miami an "election" was held. Merry Schellinger (MnU) will continue as chair for 1994-95. Patrick Stevens, curator of the Fiske Collection (NIC) is the new Secretary/Chair-Elect for 1995-96.

    The Survey of Scandinavian Collection Development has been sent out, and several have been returned. Completed surveys should be made available electronically for all to see (on SASSLINK and/or COLL-LISTSERV). Librarians in Amsterdam have expressed interest in our survey process, as they are preparing a similar project. For the next annual meeting, we will continue to think about ways to use the data from the returned surveys. One suggestion was to create a "clearinghouse" with the data, which could be used to set up formal and informal collection development agreements.

    More complete minutes will be available on DISC-NORDIC and DISC-NORDLIB.

    --Merry Schellinger (MnU), Chair
