Hi All

 

Due to some scheduling conflicts, I was unable to attend the meeting RUSA STARS International ILL meeting on Saturday morning.  What did I miss?  Also, I've got a lot of energy I'd like to get rid of-is there anything I can do between conferences to help the group get some stuff done?

 

Let me know.  Thanks!

Committee Unity of Purpose and Direction: 

Agree on goals of the work.  Need to create new tasks and move forward. 

Do we ditch what we’ve done, start over, broaden or what?

Asked about background on the plan with timeline, accountability, etc.  What was the reason for choosing these?  Other methods for achieving these outcomes.  Things that were already in place.  All the documentation is available on the Connect space to the decisions.

Discussed idea of waiting for more direction from the chairs of the group. 

Group reviewed the tasks, asked if there were other tasks to be added or ones to eliminate.  Nothing was changed.

The following individuals agreed to be chair/co-chaired.  They will get others to join their subcommittee.

  1. Investigate ideas from other professional organizations—Brett/Pat
  2. Collect/review data on what young librarians need from ALA—Xima/
  3. Review ALA Activities underway that may address needs of young libraries such as electronic participation
  4. Review how divisions have reorganized to streamline processes—involve and retain young librarians—Eric/Emily

Brett will look for remaining co-chairs/chairs.

Video—It’s been made—need a post MW video push—will be doing a push at the Young Turks reception.  Collect and review data—If have enough responses will do an edited video.  Use it to introduce the final report.

Blog—can serve as a clearinghouse for information.  Can be used to promote work.  All have rights.

*Chairs remind and ask members to put up a profile and do a video by mid-February.

Organizing and Assigning Next work:

  • Project—agreed to the assignments
  • Board outcome—2 page action item is desired document
  • Video for Board
