annual project

The resource page will be CARLI focused but will also include useful external sites as suggested (USUS http://www.usus.org.uk).  An in person meeting may be helpful so we can more easily continue discussion and development.  Mary will put together a survey to find a February in person meeting date instead of the regular conference call on Feb. 2.

continuing education

Cindy will contact Gale and ProQuest to schedule the next webinars.

Proposal discussion

The discussion of finding and evaluating smaller ejournal packages continued. The Collection Management Committee launched their survey on collaborative collection development with monographs.

Meeting Dates and Deadlines

Potential in person meeting for February.  Date TBA.
