Le Consortium des bibliothèques universitaires suisses rejoint la SLSP

Library Technology Reports - Fri, 2019-12-06 08:43
(December 6, 2019). Nous y voilà: le 1er janvier 2020, le Consortium des bibliothèques universitaires suisses rejoindra la SLSP. Les universités cantonales, le Domaine des EPF, les hautes écoles spécialisées et la Bibliothèque nationale ont fondé ce consortium en l'an 2000. Depuis lors, la bibliothèque EPF a dirigé le consortium dans le cadre d'un projet. La transition vers une organisation permanente fait l'objet de discussions depuis quelque temps. Avec la SLSP, le cadre idéal a été trouvé. C'est pourquoi le consortium a été intégré dès le début aux demandes de projet de la SLSP. Fin août, le conseil d'administration de la SLSP a approuvé le passage du consortium à la SLSP.
