Minutes of the January 20, 2011 Meeting

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

1. IRIS Guide

There have been delays in updating the IRIS Guide due to problems with the style sheet. After reviewing some proof of concept pages, the committee agreed that it would be beneficial to recreate the guide as a Libguide and link out to it from IRIS. Updating will be easier, more than one person can be given access to make updates, and the general organization will be more familiar to users who are already aware of research guides done in that platform.

Stephanie will transfer the content and make the necessary updates. A table of contents page similar to the upper section of the existing guide will be included.

2. Continuing review of Rev.D / Project Chart

3. Cleanup of initial articles in 245s

Mary Beth Weber has agreed that Li can take on the work of cleaning up titles that lack the indicator for their initial articles. The majority of these are MRQ brief records that were created in GEAC in the period between 1983 and 1987 when use of the indicator was not an option. To find them using a Title begins with search in IRIS, the initial article must be included as part of the search.

Li and Bob have worked out a way for her to use MARC edit to make global corrections to the records. The next step will be to determine the optimum search criteria for identifying the records. The project will begin with English language records and proceed to other languages as time permits and as new criteria for those languages is developed.

4. IRIS feedback and fixes

5. Updates on permalinking and checklist for testing software updates

6. Mid-year review of goals

Progress has been made on four of the five goals established by IPAC last year. Stephanie will draft a mid-year report to reflect the current status of those goals.

8. Next meeting
