Committee Projects


No updates


Discussion of third podcast, which is in the planning stages.  Mary updated to say that they had contacted potential people, and were waiting to hear back. The plan is to talk to people about non-CARLI digital platform collections, including how institutions select collections and platforms and the planning process. Issue is that the planning and implementation are carried out by different groups, so people are hesitant to speak to both parts of the process. They are going to follow up with the people they contacted earlier this month. Perhaps split into two episodes to address issues. 

WHITE PAPER and Annual REport

White paper is in pretty good shape. Everyone has taken a look at it. We discussed some repetitive language that Margaret pointed out, but no strong feelings to changing this. Mary pointed out lack of consistency and editorial comments that needed to be removed. Amy said this was no problem and she could do last edits before the board meeting. She would want to finish this by the end of the week, and so all last edits should be made by tomorrow.

Amy also reminded everyone to look at the annual report by Friday. 

New Items

Adam brought up procedural items for next year. We will have one more phone call in June and then an in-person meeting in July or August. Amy will see if the people who are starting in July want to be on the call in June. Adam will finish up as chair and so we need to pick a new chair in June.
