Collections and Technical Services ForumWelcome to the VLA Collections and Technical Services Forum!

We want the CaTS Forum to be a place to:

  1. Ask questions for technical services, collection management, and technology-oriented library employees
  2. Share CaTS events
  3. Share Collections and Technical Services related content that may be useful to others.
Please consider joining the Virginia Library Association (VLA) Collections and Technical Service (CaTS) E-list. You'll need to log in to the VLA website, and go to My Profile>My Features>E-lists. Slide the tabs next to the lists to "ON" to join. Here are just some examples of what joining the list will help you do:
  • Get notifications of CaTS events
  • Ask ILS questions
  • Find out what other catalogers do about certain types of materials
  • What are others doing about e-book subscriptions
  • Get advice on collection management or other technical services best practices
  • Ask about emerging technology or new software
  • Find a library to do a technical services practicum
