LEP Partnership Accord

The LEP is seeking input from librarians on the LEP Partnership Accord between libraries and the ABS, which was recently updated by amending some outdated terminology and including reference to delivery of web services to libraries. This new version is available on the ABS web site at the address below.

For those newer to the LEP, the LEP Partnership is an Accord that describes the obligations of the ABS to libraries in providing them with a suite of complimentary ABS products and services. It also outlines libraries' responsibilities to the ABS in return for the free products and services supplied to them.

For example, an LEP member library is expected to assist their clients to locate ABS information within their own library. To help libraries do this, the LEP library is asked to release staff to attend free LEP training and to designate a member of staff to be the LEP contact person for communication between ABS and the member library.

The LEP would appreciate comments from librarians about the Accord, with a view to improving the outcomes of the Partnership Accord.
