On December 14th, 2015 CRIV had its first semiannual call with Wolters Kluwer.
There were no outstanding Requests for Advocacy involving WK products from the membership to discuss.
We discussed an ongoing project regarding MARC records. WK is creating MARC records for Intelliconnect and Cheetah. VRAG is working closely with WK to develop what the record should look like.
In terms of upcoming changes and developments- most content is moving over to the new platform, Cheetah. In addition, they recently changed brands. What used to be WK Law and Business will now be Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory Solutions U.S. The legal entity is still CCH Incorporated, but the business unit name has changed. The logo will not change.
WK stressed that they are very much interested in continuing to support AALL programming and educational activities. They would like to be on panels at the Annual Meeting.
Finally, our current liaison, Linda Dutton is retiring in February 2016, and a permanent replacement has not yet been named.
CRIV will hold another call with WK in Spring of 2016.
