Exploration Outcomes from Board meeting
Isaac and Jodi provide update from the August 31 Board meeting. We presented the proposal for next steps in exploration: OERs and sharing collections; hold off on further exploration of data management.

We were very well received with a lot of enthusiasm.

There were the following questions:
  • OERs: Good, but ensure that we don”t analyze it to death. Given the additional discussion of OERs this week, this is very timely.
  • Sharing collections: Also good. Asked that we coordinate with/draw expertise from Discovery & Delivery.
The Team should go ahead with exploration this year. Next steps will be to construct charges for the working groups and get them working.

Digital collections initiative update
Short update: Program Manager and Metadata Applications Librarian had their first substantial planning meeting, also a productive interaction with the chair of the Normalization Rules WG.

We are eager to get the WG appointed and keep this initiative moving.

Digital Content COE
Update on the scope and structure of this initiative: Not a great deal to report after the ExL meeting. More to come at future meetings.

EAD Database WG
The Team reviewed and approved the charge for the working group. The program manager can start recruiting.

Statement of Principles for Unique Collections Project Charter
The group reviewed the project charter, which has been reviewed and approved by the Executive Director so that it contributes effectively to strategic planning preparations.Statement of principles is philosophical and organization-wide and about ‘why?’. Charges for UCSILS WG and DC WG are much more specific, ultimately operational, the ‘how.’

IG/JAB will do specifics of timeline and bring back to Team for finalization at the next meeting.

Digital Preservation WG
The team discussed and made revisions to the team charge. There are a few final charges to be made; the Program Manager should make those and bring them back to the Team for approval before recruiting begins.
