Midwinter discussion forum

The group returned to our idea of hosting a discussion forum at Midwinter 2012 about collaborations between Learning Commons and libraries. Amy agreed to write up a proposal and present it at the MARS Executive Committee meeting on June 27. We also discussed following up the forum with a webinar in February as well as recording the forum itself. Members agreed to see what options were available for software to use to host the webinar.


2012 Annual program

Amy reviewed the status of our program proposal for Annual 2012. It has been submitted to the RUSA Executive Committee, which will vote at conference.
