1. "In Progress/Under Investigation" IRIS issues

  1. Records that index initial articles
    • Needs to be dealt with, but resolution has to come from Cataloging
    • "the" is the major problem; not as many "an" records.
    • Don't have a number for how many records involved; Bob will find number of potential problem records; we'll refer the issue to Cataloging.
  2. Linking to the E-Reserve flash tutorial
    • Original suggestion came from WAC
    • Not sure that the tutorial is still maintained
    • Remove this from the "to do" list
