Join us for this special webinar and Q&A session. As academic library budgets continue to fluctuate, our members have concerns in meeting Coordinated Collection Development Aid Maintenance of Effort requirements. Please join us for a brief demo of the report tool and a conversation with Division of Library Development’s Barbara Lilley and learn more about the CCDA application process and those trip points that affect successful submissions. Together we will focus our conversation around application waivers, roll over funding, and other library funding that may impact your bottom line and whether it should be included in your application budget. Bring your questions and concerns and let’s chat. Please invite your business manager or Financial Officer to take part in the conversation so that your library is better prepared to complete the application over the summer.
