  1. Approval of Minutes
  2. Minutes of the December 11, 2003 meeting were approved.

  3. Seamless Information Task Force
  4. Jeris outlined the highlights of the report after which there was a discussion of various points. Suggestions included:

    There was general agreement that the intent of the document was worthwhile and that the position described was needed. A revised version will be distributed to ISSG for review.

  5. Temporary line
  6. The line vacated by Angel Falcon is available for Information Services use from the end of February until July 2004. Hiring 2 part-time librarians is also an option. Information on staffing needs and names of possible candidates should be sent to MCW as soon as possible. Kilmer Library is most in need of this position since Angel was originally assigned at Kilmer with one reference desk shift per week at Alexander.

  7. Standardizing voucher rates across NBL

  8. Instruction coordination
  9. English 201 and 301 classes were scheduled in January and a list of classes was sent to both Kevin Mulcahy and Eileen Stec. Many of the classes are already covered.

  10. 2004/2004 ACIC
  11. Because the information about ACIC was so late coming out this year, ISSG is not coordinating the proposals. 3 separate proposals are being submitted to Farideh for review before they are subsequently sent to Marianne for final ranking/decision on submission.

  12. Reports
