At Jisc, we’ve never been afraid of a good acronym. But recently we’ve started moving more into meaningful project names. Alas, as excellent intentions so often do, it comes up against expediency, leading to an outbreak of abbreviations.
Two of these meaningfully-named but oft-abbreviated projects are the National Bibliographic Knowledgebase (NBK) and Transforming Library Support Services (TLSS).
TLSS is an on-going programme of work within Jisc to implement more efficient and effective library services and enabling us to continue to deliver the needs of libraries with existing and new services. The NBK is an important aspect of this, and is one of the TLSS transformation activities. You can read more about TLSS, and keep up-to-date on activities and progress, on the project blog: https://libraryservices.jiscinvolve.org/wp/
Another aspect of TLSS is joining-up communication across Jisc Library Support Services – we know that often you’re getting similar messages coming from different places within Jisc, and we’re trying to coordinate our communication so that you don’t need to monitor multiple channels to find out what’s going on. So from now on NBK progress updates will be posted on the TLSS project blog.
