Bill Bejarano was introduced as newest member of the B/P/P team. Bill will be working mainly at LSM in the Library Tech II line through UMDNJ.
Each Focus group was asked to come up with a wish list for items they would like and need. Items mentioned included: Barcode guns, color printers, paper cutters, new book carts, and a guillotine for LSM.
Updates were given for ongoing projects, such as the EAL project & SMLR project.
Plan was discussed for the rebinding of repairs project at both Alexander and LSM.
Ian has been in discussions with Andy Martinez about the shelving of oversized material. Some suggestions included standardizing shelve heights and there locations.
New locations could include Folio for libraries that do not currently have a Folio area or Elephant Folio for Libraries that already have Folio area and books are still too large.
If new locations are not possible or for titles that do not fall into Folio or E-Folio but are still large they may be shelved on spine, which may require re-labeling in a new position on book so that call number may still be seen.
Douglass library may serve as a test bed for new shelving practices and locations.
There has been a push to incorporate Newark and Camden into the NB BPP meetings.
Need to research booking rooms for teleconferencing
