Title:Regional network contracts with libraries for OCLC services
Author(s):Evans, Glyn T.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Abstract:THIS PAPER is WRITTEN solely from the viewpoint of providing OCLC services; therefore, unlike the other papers in this clinic, it is barely concerned with the act, or perhaps art, of negotiation. Rather, it deals with the complexities of the fiscal and administrative environment in which regional library networks and their member libraries exist, and the problems of developing a service contract within this environment. Negotiation, in the competitive sense, is seldom a factor here. The library wants the service and the network can provide it; how can it best be done? Before examining the regional network and library contracts, however, the structure of the Ohio College Library Center (OCLC) network should be described.
