What's the equivalent of JISC in the US? Really liking a lot of the projects they're funding. If there isn't one, there should be!

There isn't one, and I agree, there should be! Advantages of being a smallish country with a strong tradition of national-level library work and cooperation. For leadership on scholarly-communication issues in the US, look to ARL/SPARC, and occasionally the ACRL or ALCTS divisions of ALA. For the kind of seed funding JISC gives out, try IMLS. Otherwise... there ain't much outside of individual library initiative. Sadly. -
Demurring only partly: From a public library perspective, I suspect the Big National Funding/Control/Initiative model isn't working out that well in Britain--and I wonder whether it would really serve U.S. academic libraries all that well. -
