Agenda

ANNOUNCEMENTS

- Zohreh Bonianian will now be in charge of the Building Security & Maintenance Fuctional Group, replacing Rose Barbalace.

- Status of Special Projects (LSM Special Collections & LSM Second Floor):

It was agreed that both shifting projects at LSM should be started after the holiday break. Group members will sign-up for the time that they are available to help, and will be trained on-site to learn how to create records for Special Collections books. Some of these books will go to the Annex, while others will go to Special Collections at Alexander Library. The weeding process is moving along slowly at LSM on the second floor, so hopefully selectors will be encouraged to keep at it for as long as it takes to complete the process. Both of the shifts at LSM are the main priority for the group.

WEEDING GUIDELINES

A handout for weeding guidelines was distributed to the group. It was the consensus Of the group that based on what we read in the handout, it is the bibliographers responsibility to decide which books need to be weeded.

PRESERVATION PROJECT

The idea for the “RU coffee mug” has gone to the Public Services Counsel for Review.
