Minutes of March 1, 2002 Meeting

Leslie Murtha , Bobbi Tipton, Eileen Stec(recorder), Tricia Libuti, Julie Still (virtually)

Minutes from last meeting were reviewed and 2 minor corrections made.


The SAL course may not contain a library component at Douglass. It is unclear at this time how the libraries will be expected to participate.

The $5000 earned from the Research Methods class will be spent to purchase 2 computers and as much multi-media software as we can afford. The software and hardware will be available for all RUL faculty and staff and located at Douglass.

Old business

Eileen will use the electronic reserves set up by Tricia Libutti and add exemplary materials.

New Business

Planning for Workshop series -Tricia Libutti.

Instead of a workshop series there will be an all-day program somewhat similar to ACRL's immersion program using the IHL's and Pane for meetings some group to pay for lunch. Target date of May 9th. 10:00am to 3:00pm. The rooms have been reserved. Date subsequently changed to May 10, due to schedule conflict.

Ideas discussed:

Possible speakers, Carol Kulthau (instruction), a creativity speaker (maybe) and Jeff Smith (assessment). Designing meaningful exercises for participants. We could also

  1. Consider lesson plans
  2. knowing your audience
  3. assessment
  4. special populations.
  5. Possibly combining 2 and 3. A presentation on the process to design assessment (Eileen). 2-3 speakers.

The task force will work with these recommendations.

Web Page Revision

The committee would like links to instruction librarians' home pages. Further discussion will take place on this issue at WAC.

The "subject specialist" link goes to a page titled "collection development" and this change in vocabulary will confuse users. This issue will be brought up at WAC. The committee discussed adding a page from the Instruction pages with a separate list of subject specialists.

The committee has agreed that the current pages are ready to go live.

Since we are always creating, we will continue to improve and add information.

There will be an April 5th meeting to assist the workshop task force. The May meeting will be skipped.

We will take up the train-the trainer activites for teaching faculty, and will occur during a summer meeting, so the ENG 201 instructors will have an opportunity to de-brief with the Writing Program Director, Michael Cripps, and their feedback will inform the ISC actions.
