Nueva ronda de votaciones para recursos Metalib en el sistema de votación de IGELU

Se abre una nueva ronda de votaciones y del estado de la implementación de los recursos ya votados. En este proceso sólo pueden votar los miembros de IGELU pero creo que es una información que puede interesar a todos:

The next (4th) round of MetaLib CKB enhancements voting will begin in April.  The snapshot will be taken on April 15th, so please get your CKB enhancements into Ex Libris before then and then get ready to vote.

The MetaLib CKB enhancements voting now takes place at the same time as the SFX CKB enhancements vote – we hope this makes it easier for everyone to coordinate their work.  More information about the enhancements voting process can now be found in EL Commons, at (requires EL Commons login).

Below are the latest update we have from Ex Libris re: the progress they are making on the databases you vote for them to prioritize.  Please let those of us on the MetaLib Product Working groups know if you have any questions.
