29.78% of DOCLINE libraries in the Pacific Southwest participate in EFTS!
Three years ago, EFTS was a brand-new feature for DOCLINE libraries in the Pacific Southwest. The first library in our region to join was the Library of the California Academy of Sciences. Now, as of June 30, 2005, we have 123 EFTS participants out of 413 DOCLINE libraries — almost 30% of our libraries participate.
We wish to welcome the following libraries that have joined since we last posted a list of new members in February 2005:
CAUAXN – Ismael Medical Library, Regional Medical Center of San Jose, San Jose, CA
CAUCIR – Science Library, University of California, Irvine, Irvine, CA
CAUUCI – Grunigen Medical Library, University of California, Irvine, Orange, CA
CAUORV – Goddard Memorial Library, Oroville Hospital, Oroville, CA

Pacific Southwest Region Resource Libraries and EFTS
All continental-US Resource Libraries in the Pacific Southwest Region have now joined EFTS, the DOCLINE billing component. The only remaining Resource Library still to join is the University of Guam.
Revised Memorandum of Agreement
The Memorandum of Agreement has been redesigned. The new MOA, in use since March 2005, no longer requires co-signing by an institutional fiscal officer; instead the new form asks for a signature from someone in the institution who can verify that the responsible library person has the authority to sign; this might be someone in your institution’s purchasing department, business office, or your boss, but you no longer need to get the CFO to sign! The document requires the signature and seal of a Notary.
The EFTS Newsletter is now available on the EFTS website. The most recent issue includes a description of version 3 software, redistribution policy and procedures, and policy changes regarding credit card deposits.
