  • Matt was confirmed to take minutes this month.
  • The April 2 meeting minutes were approved.

Linked Data Webinar Survey Responses and Follow-up

  • Elizabeth reports that there was enormous interest in the subject based on attendance numbers.
  • However, relatively few survey responses were submitted. These focus mostly on technical problems and not on content. Most sessions generally well-received.
  • No plans to develop a resource list or introduction for posting to the CARLI site at this time. As Tricia pointed out, the field is rapidly developing and maintenance would be challenging.

Facebook Post Procedures

  • Submission form
    • Amy received confirmation from CARLI management that we can use the form submission as a consent to share as long as we review rights information. Matt re-wrote the introduction to include requested language. This was shared after the meeting with CARLI management who gave their approval.
    • Matt made all other suggested changes from last meeting. Form was approved by Committee.
  • Facebook Workflow
    • Committee members will serve as either Facebook editors, creating posts based on form submissions, or submit form to build a backfile.
    • Matt and Marlee are already editors, Tricia also volunteered. Matt will check with absent members to see if anyone else is interested. Remaining members will backfile posts.
    • Backfilers will submit 1 or 2 posts over the next month using the form.
    • We will revisit how many posts to have in backfile after our next meeting.
  • Newsletter announcement
    • Tricia will draft announcement for May newsletter, aiming to have a draft done by Friday the 24th of May. If before newsletter deadline, we’ll review at our next meeting. Otherwise, we’ll approve via email.

Annual Report

  • Matt will draft an annual report to the CARLI Board, which we will review at our next meeting on May 28.
