Collections and Technical Services Forum (CaTS)

Welcome to the VLA Collections and Technical Services Forum! Please check out our Google Group: a great way to let everyone know about CaTS events, and a great place to ask questions of a specialized community. Have an ILS-specific question? Did you just start a new job and need to know what other catalogers do about certain types of materials? Want to know what others are doing about e-book subscriptions? Need collection management advice? Have questions about emerging technology or new software?

We want the CaTS Forum to be a place to ask questions for technical services, collection management, and technology-oriented library employees as well as a way to distribute information. If you have any questions please contact Easter DiGangi ([email protected]) or Jessica Robertson ([email protected])
