ShelfLister: Thanks to Matt for testing ShelfLister with the use of his Ipad. In response to his input, extras have been added. A FAQ will be on the CARLI website which addresses best uses for ShelfLister, including tips such as using barcodes instead of call numbers. CARLI will not be responsible for enhancement inquires; Michael Doran at the University of Texas is the contact. ShelfLister will also be part of the upcoming resource sharing webinar.

CARLI Report:

  • The CARLI board recommended that 5 circulating copies of any edition of a UB available material is sufficient for holding. This is a guideline not mandatory. Full text of this recommendation is on the CARLI website.
  • XC demo site, libraries can look at the XC Drupal interface. NCIP toolkit is not yet loaded, so no info about item status or holdings yet.
  • CARLI E-resources staff member David Hamilton has left and there is a search to fill his position.
  • Computype now has a special deal for CARLI libraries
  • The CARLI annual meeting is possibly November 10, it will be a webinar, guest speaker confirmation pending.

IUG Report

IUG has nothing to report.

E-BOOK meeting in Champaign: tba

Dallas: Open hold shelf: Dallas reported that at his library combining the reference and circulation desk is a possibility. The desk will be made circular. The question was raised regarding what happens to hold shelf and reserve materials out in the open as circulation moves to self-service. Public libraries are the model that we would follow. Books requests could be assigned a number that would be private to protect the privacy. Possibility of patron taking a book that does not belong to them, but then without self serve checkout stations that would be prevented. Or at some public libraries the front cover is covered, but that labor and cost intensive.

Fall forum webinar: 12th morning, 13th afternoon. Agenda would include: welcome to CARLI, tour of website, discussion of phase 3 of UB standardization, how to prepare for new blocks. Demo of ShelfLister. Next regular meeting on 10/6 will include a demo rehearsal.

Best practices for delivery: The CARLI website delivery policies looked sufficient. ILDS and damaged documents need to be amended to include non book material. Document is almost 5 years old. Needs to be re-advertised. Volunteers from this committee could re-write sections of the document and re-announce it to the community and thus advertise and update it at the same time. Try to have it done by the November meeting, prior to Thanksgiving.

Counter cleanup and UB blocking update:  Still working on criteria and plan. These reports show who would be blocked and who wouldn’t. First counter clean up toward end of September.

Ebook meeting in October: Questions raised will hopefully be addressed at that time. Not sure if anyone from Resource Sharing needs to be at the Ebook meeting.

Meeting adjourned at 2:58.

Respectfully submitted,
Amanda Musacchio
