PASCAL libraries have been engaged in planning and discussion of a collaborative model for management of the shared system since 2015. These efforts were led by the Collaborative Governance Task Force (CGTF). With input from members, the CGTF developed a Collaborative Management Framework that focuses on consensus building and enables all member libraries to participate fully and provide feedback. Multiple teams, made up of member library staff, will be involved in coordination, implementation, and management of the shared system. These teams will be looking at best practices and how to bring institutional policies, procedures, and workflows together when necessary. The teams will work on behalf of all member libraries to determine where it makes sense for libraries to do things the same way, and where it is important to customize at the local level.
