This is an invitation to become acquainted with the Northern and Central California Psychology Libraries (NCCPL) consortium. NCCPL, established in 1985, joins together library/information centers and individuals who serve psychology/mental health communities. The Consortium strives to enhance the effectiveness of its members through collaboration and mutual support.
Any library/information center or individual in Northern or Central California that serves the psychology and/or mental health community and shares the interests and goals of NCCPL is eligible for membership. Admission to membership is based on a two-thirds vote by the total membership.
Membership shall be open to any library / information center of an institution in Northern or Central California that supports programs in psychology and shares the interest and goals of NCCPL. Membership is also available to individual professional librarians who wish to participate.
Each institutional member must build and maintain a resource collection which meets the basic, recurring needs of its primary clientele. Institutional member libraries agree to participate in the activities, abide by the agreements, and are entitled to the privileges established in the document "NCCPL activities...etc." All institutional members must have at least one staff person with a Masters degree from an ALA-accredited institution (or the equivalent), practicing at the California location.
Individual members are required to have a Masters degree from an ALA- accredited institution, or the equivalent.
New members must be approved by vote of the current membership. Two-thirds of the total membership must vote to approve a new member (or to revoke membership).
Each member shall have one and only one vote.
All members shall attend at least one meeting each year. Institutional members may be represented by the Library Director or by any appointed representative.
NCCPL meets on a quarterly basis. The site of each meeting rotates among the membership. Meetings are open to members and invited guests.
