The recent posts about an upcoming meeting held by "The Alliance"
(motto: 'Resistance to The Alliance is futile.') about coordinating
research efforts in library-land gave me an idea.
My area of interest is in collections, and one of the projects I'm
interested in is to see what happened to circulation for academic
libraries that switched to World Cat Local this year. For libraries
that track their item circulation, it should be fairly simple to
compare pre-and post WCL to see if it had any affect, both on the
local collection and number of SUMMIT and ILL requests.
I can do this with PCC data, but it would be more interesting to
have several libraries included.
If you are interested, respond to me directly at this email:

If there is interest, maybe we can meet at the Dec 11 meeting of the
Alliance Research Group to make plans.
