We are inspired by this, but see significant opportunity to continue to deepen our relationships with institutions already part of our services and to serve many more throughout the world. For us to achieve our mission and continue to positively impact the education and growth of people everywhere, we must continue to increase the participation in JSTOR and Portico. To achieve this we need people that have the ability to work in a team environment, enjoy interacting with individuals, and are self-motivated and committed to helping support the research needs of academic libraries.

We want these organizations to thrive, particularly in light of emerging technologies and opportunities.
