“not in the habit of charging any fees when doing verbal appraisals for non-profit organizations.
If the appraisal needs to be typed or defended in court I charge for this service”

The White Pine Library Cooperative offers consulting to libraries on a variety of issues relating to libraries and librarianship. Additionally, the Cooperative has staff with expertise in technology issues, administrative issues (such as bookkeeping, etc.) and legislation.

Each November, the Cooperative will coordinate a survey determining the continuing education needs and desires of the membership for the calendar year.
Each workshop will offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for interested participants and be conducted in the White Pine Region. Member libraries will be charged a minimum $10.00 fee to cover workshop expenses. An average cost to attend a workshop is $30.00 for a half-day, $50 for a full day. If lunch is provided in conjunction with a workshop, the cost will be incorporated into the basic fee schedule. Non-Cooperative members will be charged a higher fee to be determined by the workshop variables.
Associate members will be charged a special fee to attend workshops sponsored by the White Pine Library Cooperative. Non-Cooperative members will also be charged a higher fee to be determined by the workshop variables.
Persons who have attended one of our workshops and received CEUs can search our CEU database to see how many credits they've earned. The staff member must login using their last name and last four digits of SS#. Login Here.
Each year the Cooperative will asses delivery costs to determine how much it can subsidize member delivery. For the FY11/12, White Pine is paying 50% of delivery costs.

Original Cataloging Procedures
Full members will use regional databases (such as VLC & MeLCat) to locate needed materials in the collections of member libraries. Requests will be placed electronically for processing. Materials not in collections regionally will be requested via OCLC by Cooperative staff. Member libraries will be responsible for paying any fees assessed by lending libraries when borrowing materials via OCLC or any other lending agency.
The White Pine Library Cooperative Interlibrary Loan system, nicknamed Peabody is accessible to member libraries through the web and is used to updated statuses of OCLC requests.
A delivery system, managed by the Library of Michigan, is used to move the books around the cooperative.
