S.L.I.C.E. Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor, First Quarterly Report for the Period 1 October-31 December, 1971.
Establishing the Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor (SLICE) Office and developing the SLICE Project as an integral part of the Southwestern Library Association (SWLA) has been achieved this quarter. Identification of the Oklahoma MARC Services as the unique resource for sharing among the six states has been followed by development of a strategy for catalyzing the interstate use of this resource. Clarification of services has been accomplished and translated into a SLICE/MARC-O Brochure. Acquainting potential users with the services was identified as a critical first step and thus an educational or training program has been developed and offered to the six states. Communicating the concept of interstate cooperation throughout the six state area has taken the form of newsletter, professional press news release, and talks with professional library groups as well as the six state library agencies. Guidelines for new SLICE projects have been developed in order to stimulate other cooperative ventures. Each of the six state libraries pledged to support the Continuing Education of Librarians in the Southwest (CELS) project. A proposal for implementation of this project has been prepared.
