On October 11, 2017, ATLA held a virtual meeting for current Reciprocal Borrowing participants and those interested in the program. During the call, ATLA reviewed information shared at the previous year’s meeting regarding the insurance fund for lost items and the marketing materials available for participants.
ATLA shared feedback from member visits that member institutions have expressed interest in having an institutional profile that can provide a snapshot of collections strengths, languages and special collections. Additionally, new participants have asked for sample forms and lending processes. Participants discussed these new proposals and shared their experiences from the last year.
