Congratulations to the IDS Project for winning the 2018 Rethinking Resource Sharing Innovation Award! The Milne Library-borne IDS Project was recognized for innovative contributions to resource sharing at the American Library Association’s 2018 Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, in June 2018.
“The IDS Project, based in New York, is a resource-sharing cooperative whose 110 members include public and private academic libraries from across the country, the New York Public Library, and the New York State Library. The major goal of the Project is to continually implement and objectively evaluate innovative resource-sharing strategies, policies and procedures that will optimize mutual access to the information resources of all IDS libraries. A four-time Innovation Award winner, the IDS Project and its IDS Logic service offer robust resource sharing automation that, as the RRS Manifesto encourages, enables participating libraries to optimize workflows for fulfilling users’ resource sharing requests.” ~The Rethinking Resource Sharing Initiative
