Power of Three (POT) Working Groups: April 2011 – April 2013

The Power of Three (POT) working group framework was established by SOPAG for NGTS implementation as a departure from the past practice of forming systemwide task groups with representatives from every campus and CDL. Instead, POTs were envisioned to be nimble groups comprised of experts from the UC Libraries that would consult broadly in formulating and assessing actions and policies. These working groups were also empowered to charge “lightning teams” with specific, well-defined tasks that would assist in the completion of POT deliverables.

POT 1: Build the system-wide infrastructure for digital collections

POT 2: Transform cataloging practices

POT 3: Accelerate processing of archival and manuscript collection

POT 4: Simplify the recharge process

POT 5: Maximize the effectiveness of Shared Cataloging

POT 6: Develop system-wide Collections Services operations

POT 7: Transform collection development practices
