3. Goals Discussion:

Goal: Discuss the changing needs for reference and instruction in New Brunswick and ways to meet those needs. Discuss possible new formats for reference services in the future

Will have the same discussion for instruction next month. Tom will check on attendance for next month; since the meeting falls during the break and during ALA, we may need to reschedule.

Statistics will have to be an agenda item. Tom will follow up with Jeanne to see what she is doing.

Action items: need a resolution to the Web Board about contacting reference (such as a phone icon on the web page), Tom will craft a resolution and poll everyone on sakai.

Action items: look into what VOIP can do for us now and what it can do once fully installed. Tom will talk to Tibor.

Action items: explore a page that shows librarian availability, PCWG would handle what is possible and Web Board would see how it is presented. Tom will talk to Tibor.

4. Faculty services for online learning: Mei Ling and Jill


Judy G. - New version of E-Z Borrow in January. Still testing the new system. Should be released mid-December for testing. User interface, search interface better; searches all libraries at the same time. Trying for netID log in- not sure if this will work. If the item is owned at Rutgers, there will be an option to open IRIS and search there. Rollout tentative at beginning of spring semester.
