Stephanie Bartz (chair), Natalie Borisovets, Sara Harrington (recorder), Theo Haynes, Li Sun, Bob Warwick
Ellen Calhoun


The agenda was accepted as submitted.

1. Review of minutes

The minutes of the August 19, 2010 meeting were approved with minor revisions.

2. Continuing Review of Rev D (particularly My Account)

B. Warwick continues work on converting the IRIS Guide to the new format for Rev.D. Once that's completed, S. Bartz will proceed with updating. We are at a 'tweaking stage' for Rev.D. B. Warwick has also placed revised pages in My Account. There was consensus that the word "holds" is largely (if not entirely) meaningless to our users, and the Committee is trying to find a new word to substitute for it in My Account.

After some discussion, it was agreed that the "Checkouts, IRIS Requests, and Bills" section of My Account in test IRIS will be changed so that:

The changes will be reviewed and discussed at the October meeting.

The Committee briefly discussed progress with the proxy, as it relates to permalinking and "This Just In." B. Warwick will raise the issue with D. Hoover.

The Libraries toolbar is partially fixed; basic search is fixed, but connections to Amazon, etc. are not yet fixed.

3. IRIS Feedback

4. IRIS Guide and checklist for testing software update

IPAC members should send changes/updates to the IRIS guide to S. Bartz in short order.

5. Information Sharing

The meeting was adjourned at 3:12 p.m.

The next IPAC meeting will take place on Thursday, October 21, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. in the University Librarian's conference room, Alexander Library.
