The SCAMel Consortium of library directors are involved in, and often lead, the following cooperative projects:
- Increasing our buying power through consortial purchases of electronic resources.
- Promoting professional development through the library exchange program.
- Enhancing regional networking and collegiality by organizing and hosting the “Armadillo Ball” at the Annual MLA meeting.
- Improving research by offering cash awards to the most promising research papers and posters presented at the annual chapter meeting and by establishing research grants available to all member institutions.
