English abstract

The American Library Association’s Reference and User Services Association division, STARS Rethinking Resource Sharing Policies Committee (Sharing and Transforming Access to Resources Section), has unveiled an updated version of the STAR checklist. Find out how your library can be a STAR and how the checklist can help to shape your library’s resource sharing policies. The ALA RUSA STARS Rethinking Resource Sharing STAR Checklist provides library staff an opportunity to review and reflect on the policies and processes that comprise the resource sharing service they provide. This article describes how to implement STAR checklist standards to help serve patrons to their fullest potential. This article also expounds about the process of completing the checklist, the history of the STAR checklist, and how to strive to become a four STAR library! Earning STARS by completing the STAR Checklist can help libraries save money and impress administration.
