Meeting Notes

  1. SCS/CRL Grant Proposal Presentation and Discussion Debrief
    • Action: Rosemont Ops (Ivy and Kim) will draft a recommendation for Exec and response to SCS/CRL. Grant proposal should be included as part of the submission to Exec. 
  2. Representing Rosemont in PAPR
    • There is some sense that it would be premature to add Rosemont as a program to all records. 
    • Suggestion to examine the possibility of including a program description in PAPR without including a unified list or adding another program name to records - instead redirecting users to the separate lists of participating programs.
    • Another option for consideration: Rosemont description page with title lists available for download from each region. 
    • Consideration of the operational goal of providing easy access to a unified title list of Rosemont-affiliated retentions; additionally an operation goal may be to ensure visibility of Rosemont when users are searching individual titles/examining records.  
    • Action: Alison will mock up the model and distribute to Rosemont Ops, then engage with Amy Wood, CRL.
  3. ​Roadmap Review
    • Rosemont Ops engaged in an initial discussion of potential revisions to the roadmap. A subset of the committee has been actively reviewing and drafting revisions to present to the full committee. Discussion to continue. 
  4. ALA Meeting Planning
    • Action: Kim will check on BTAA available space and send out a Doodle poll. John offers to assist if there are space issues.
