Feasibility of Resource Sharing Solutions Working Group

Mandate

The work of this group builds on findings and recommendations from two previous resource-sharing working groups: 1) Collections and the Future of Resource Sharing, and 2) Future of Resource Sharing Infrastructure. 

The Feasibility of Resource Sharing Solutions Working Group (OCUL-FRSSWG) will undertake a feasibility study on shared resource-sharing solutions, which may include an RFI of technology options, and will result in a recommendation for how to proceed within a resource-sharing framework.
