  8. There was a discussion about copyright on the LibGuides page and if it was necessary to have a separate statement on each person’s guide.  This issue was tabled for further discussion.
  9. Paul briefed members on the preconference.  There were 16 paid attendees.  Connie Strittmatter suggested having two back-to-back sessions.  This could then be sold as one or both programs depending on the attendees needs and budget. [I learned from RUSA Board of Directors meeting that preconferences are going to be shortened by one hour i.e. ending at 4PM rather than 5PM.] Shika Sharma will be coordinating the MBA in a Day for Anaheim.  Michelle Allen and Susan Schreiner will be assisting her.

10.  Connie Strittmatter announced that Todd Hines will be taking her place with RUSA Professional Development.
