Did you know that Core has six specialty sections? Our sections are member-only networks that focus on specific areas of interests supporting core library work. You can join as many sections as you like for free as part of your membership. Just go to a new section and use the blue “Join” button located in the top upper right hand corner of each section’s page.
- Access and Equity
- Buildings and Operations
- Leadership and Management
- Metadata and Collections
You’ve already been placed in those sections that align with your previous division affiliation. For example, former members of ALCTS are already members of the Core Metadata and Collections Section, former LITA members are already in the Technology Section, and former LLAMA members are already in the Leadership and Management Section. You can find all your sections in Core Connect, under the tab, “My Sections” in the “Communities” navigation menu.
To send a message to the [Name of Section] Section, send it to [section email address]. By default, your notifications from this section have been set to daily digest, but you can change this frequency setting in your profile at any time.
We encourage you to start engaging with colleagues by picking the section most closely aligned with your topic and posting questions, sharing your own experiences, and staying current with the topics and issues that are important in your work. The Core staff will share relevant info within each section based on the specific area of interest.
Interested in more opportunities to get involved with the Core community? We’re still setting up section leadership, committees, and interest groups, which you’ll be hearing more about soon. Watch for more interest groups you can join and a call for committee volunteers in the coming weeks.
