The input of health and smaller libraries is often lacking in national conversations regarding resource sharing. So too, have OCLC libraries been neglected when considering the recent Trove Collaborative Services model change and OAI-PMH harvesting of bibliographic data.
I will bring my varied sector experience and technical knowledge to the Trove Strategic Advisory Committee to ensure that small libraries, health libraries and OCLC libraries are represented, and have a voice within Trove, as well as striving for transparency and ethical decision making.
