  • Priority Support Issues (Amy) - will meet with Ex L next week on June
  • Centers of Excellence (Jill) - Analytics - list of issues sent to Ex Libris and waiting for next meeting to be scheduled

2. Team appointments – update (Kathi)

Lots of new folks on the team next cycle. Will have chance for old and new teams to meet at dinner and team meeting for transition.

3. SCT activity at Alliance Summer Meeting (group)

Discussed possible structure of the representatives meeting and settled on an agenda. Kathi and Gordon will finalize the agenda. Kathi will send documents out to representatives in advance.

Notes from discussion:

  • About 340 attendees expected at Summer Meeting.

  • Gordon's suggestions: have Kristi and Corey present on work of their groups / discuss future directions options / last copy - present take-aways from breakout and invite discussion of next steps, what are the success stories,

  • Hathi Trust: provide an update on where we are in this investigation.

  • Members are interested in streaming media. Provide a summary of why we've not pursued streaming media (no consensus, kept it in e-resources as opt-in as a result). Possible option: event focusing on how libraries are working with streaming video in their libraries? Event goal is professional development, not leading to Alliance initiative. Possible speakers: Jim Bunnelle/L&C, Jill Emery/PSU. Ask reps: Is this of interest? Do online or in person?

  • Provide reps with an update on analytics re: collections

  • Provide reps with an update on alma re: eresources (Corey)
