    A meeting was convened at CILIP on 18th June (10.30 to 12.30 ) to look at potential ways forward regarding a library system requirement .The UKCS requirements no longer meet the needs of public libraries or reflect the changes in the offerings from library system vendors. The initiative focussed on the needs of *public* libraries at this stage. (a more up to date specification for academic libraries is already available.)
