FCLSC Draft Agenda
1. First Thousand Years of Greek/Open Greek and Latin Project-Updates Collaborative Opportunities (Greg Crane, Lenny Muellner, Lucie Stylianopoulos)
2. Collaborative collection development in the classics (General Discussion)
“Collective collections” was the buzzword for 2017. Is your institution diving in?
Balancing faculty/researchers’ need for access to the very large and transdisciplinary corpus of primary and critical works in classics against shrinking budgets and lack of space.
a. Creating the “collective collection”: Ivy Plus, RECAP
b. Electronic vs. print or both?
c. Small publishers and esoteric publications: which institutions are collecting them? Can we work together for coverage?
d. “Orphan titles” project, revisited, in the spirit of collaboration.
3. Acquiring classical studies materials from Greece. Special guest Kostas Papadopoulos, Director, Oionos Bookservices from Greece will be available to answer questions.
