GODORT Legislation Committee

Agenda (LegComm I)

 

Saturday, June 27, 2015

1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Hotel Nikko-Nikko BR 3

 

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • Competencies – 10 minutes

ALA core competencies looking to add suggestions for govdocs competencies. LegComm and GIS agreed to accept the additions to ALA core competencies to include govt information in the Information Sources, Organization of recorded knowledge and Reference and user services sections. Add new competencies to include the unique nature of govt information.  

  • Coalition Brainstorming meeting – 10 minutes

Planning to hold a brainstorming meeting. How to pull together diverse voices (particularly within ALA)? The thought is something like the Copyright alliance. How can we coordinate better within ALA?

The thought is to pick up the competencies thread, building on GPO’s training work. This would bring in GODORT, RUSA, PLA, ACRL, ALCTS.

Reactions?

“great way to get started,” “education is a common thread,” “GODORT already reaching out to school librarians with GOVDOCS4KIDS,”

“would like to also include a piece on advocacy”

Jessica will look for a space at midwinter

LegComm and preservation working group is working on a message of the value of govt info experts and preserving collections. Private sector reps on the working group are interested in both of these pieces – they see the value of govtinfo specialists (who buy their products) and preservation of collections (they may need to go back and re-digitize so may need physical copies).

  • FDLP Education Brief – 15 minutes

FDLP information sheet – to be handed out by ALA WO to staffers on the hill. This originally came out of GODORT (Thanks Jill Vasilakos-Long!). brought it to COL to have it adopted ALA wide.

COL deferred it to GIS.

Discussion ensued. Some editing occurred and Jill and others agreed to work on the document after the meeting. New title "Getting govt information to your constituents: the Federal Depository Library Program". 

 

  • GPO Update (Mary Alice Baish, GPO’s Superintendent of Documents) – 15 minutes

MAB and Cindy Etkin. Announcements:

FIPnet came out of the 2012 FDLP survey. NAPA wrote report about all the business units within GPO. Staff are now working to ingest panama canal commission reports into FDsys frorm UFL. They will have the GPO authentication symbol. After ingest, UFL will take down their copies and link instead to the authenticated versions in Fdsys.

LC almost finished digitizing bound historic congressional record. No timeframe yet.

LSCM is going to digitize the entire run of the Federal Register.

Cindy Etkin on FIPnet:

What is FIPnet and how does it relate to the FDLP? (www.gpo.gov/PreserveFedInfo)

David Wall: permanent public access doesn’t happen without preservation, and preservation needs to happen in collaboration. Map the landscape to build a patchwork quilt of preservation 

FIPnet is a strategic initiative. GPO is in the outreach phase.

Web harvesting a top priority.

  • NTIS – 10 minutes

Pending legislation that would cause harm to NTIS. Those forces are quiet. Dept of Commerce has done an internal assessment and review that isn’t public. NIST, NTIS’ managing unit within Commerce. The hope is for the negative buzz to just stay quiet.

  • Discuss any current resolutions

Anything happening on this front?

James brought forward a draft ALA resolution on fugitive government publications. The resolution was tabled and sent back to LegComm for more discussion.

  • Misc.

Online Doc ALA Constuitution and Bylaws Committee reort to Council, Annuak Conference 2015

by James Rettig on Sat, Jun 27, 2015 at 05:49 pm
in ALA Council

Council members,

Council members,

I am not attempting to preempt the Council Secretariat, just want to get this report from the ALA Constitution and Bylaws Committee into your hands on on your screens ASAP.  It includes an action item that might come before you tomorrow at Council I.  It proposes an amendment to two sections of article X of the ALA Constitution.  The current text of these sections is archaic, ambiguous, and confusing.  C&B proposes amending these two sections by replacing the current language with clearer language.   The Committee believes the proposed new language honors the original intent of these sections and expresses that intent more clearly.

Jim Rettig,

Chair, ALA Constitution and Bylaws Committee, 2014-16
