SHARES Advisory Groups
SHARES Executive Group
The SHARES Executive Group represents the interests of all participants in SHARES. It advises OCLC Research and the OCLC Research Library Partnership on long-term planning for SHARES services, identifies needs for new or revised policies for resource-sharing activities, develops ideas for program enhancements and addresses strategic directions.
Eight participants are elected by the SHARES liaisons and serve for two years; three of the seats are allotted to members from museum, law, and non-North American institutions. Every year four representatives are elected.

SHARES Participants have frequent opportunities to come together with peers to find solutions to commonly held collection sharing challenges. Calls for volunteers go out on the SHARES-L discussion listserv least each time a new effort is launched.
