Directors and billing contacts of Minitex/OCLC participating libraries received an e-mail yesterday outlining upcoming important changes to the OCLC billing process.
Effective July 1, 2012, billing for OCLC products and services will move from Minitex to OCLC.
In July 2009 the nature of the partnership between Minitex and OCLC changed as support for OCLC products and services moved from Minitex to OCLC Support Services. That partnership continues to evolve as OCLC moves to consolidate and centralize administrative services and this billing transition is another step toward that end.
Minitex and OCLC will provide much more information about this transition in the coming months. You can also find more information about the transition on OCLC's Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
We are working closely with OCLC to ensure a smooth transition for each library. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact
- Carla Urban, of Minitex, at 1-800-462-5348 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Becky Hurley, of OCLC Support Services, at 1-800-848-5878, ext. 4316 or email@example.com.
Thank you for your support as we make this change in billing, for your ongoing collaboration as a Minitex participant, and for your important contributions to the OCLC Cooperative.
