Selection system redesign  - Cindy gave an update on the selection system redesign.  Vendors are adding their pricing to the system in a staggered manner over the next three weeks.  The last week of April will be devoted to verifying information in the system.  The plan is to open the new system in early May so libraries can begin making FY17 selections.

annual project

Usage Statistics Resource page – The committee’s draft electronic resources page was discussed and additional information suggested.   Mary is working with Margaret on design details and will send a link for review before our next meeting.  The project will need to be finished prior to May 27, 2016 so please send any updates before the next meeting.  Susie will do a summary of the project to submit to the CARLI Board with the project page.

continuing education

The ProQuest usage statistics webinar for CARLI took place on March 8th and had 48 attendees.   The slides and questions answered by the presenter will be added to the resource page.  The Gale usage statistics webinar has not yet been scheduled, but it was suggested that we wait until a less busy time, perhaps after the semester is over or when the new fiscal year begins.

Future plans

New committee chair for 2016/2017 - A new committee chair will be needed for next year.  Anyone interested in putting their name forward should contact Cindy prior to our next meeting.
