Minutes of February 17, 2005 Meeting

Stephanie Bartz (convener); Natalie Borisovets; Ellen Calhoun (recorder), Theo Haynes (remote); Bob Warwick


  1. Leadership and membership
  2. IPAC and WAC merger
  3. Walkthrough of changes in the test catalog
  4. Discussion of additional modifications including suggestions from Judy Gardner (also changes never made to WebCat that should be done in iLink)
  5. Table of contents in catalog records
  6. Pre-rollout timeline and assessment

Stephanie agreed to chair IPAC at least until iLink reaches production. Group expressed the need for additional members, including someone from cataloging and another instruction/reference librarian. Theo expressed interest in continuing to attend IPAC along with V. Bowman when she returns from leave, and group welcomed the idea.

IPAC felt it was not necessary to merge with WAC. Two IPAC members (Stephanie and Theo) are currently WAC members, so can act as liaisons if needed.

Bob has done the following changes in the test catalog:

Bob will:

Stephanie will:

Suggestions from the meeting for additional changes to the test catalog:

IPAC decided to continue using codes for sub locations. Wording was too confusing and does not match shelf labels. Also decided to leave the "as of now you owe" column for fine accumulations.

Table of contents will be outside links through 856s. Since they are not in the 505 field, as were BNA, they cannot be indexed.

Public comments will be solicited after Spring Break. Next IPAC meetings are scheduled for 3/17, 3/31, 4/21, 5/5, and 5/19 at ALEX Rutgers room.
