RAILS Technical Services Networking Group

We're an informal group that discusses the latest issues in processing, vendors, collection management, cataloging, and more. Everyone is encouraged to add topics to the agenda and the meetings are open to all levels of staff.


We meet quarterly wherever someone will host us. Meetings last about 2 hours and a library tour usually follows. The meetings are always posted on the L2 calendar.


We use the RAILS Technical Services list serv to communicate (email: techserv@list.railslibraries.info).
