Midwinter Meeting Notes (January 22, 2012)

-The attendees agreed to organize a moderated discussion session during ALA Annual on the workflow and staffing in the increasingly electronic collection development. Other discussion topics that were considered were assessment, cooperative collection, new models of collection development, ERM systems, and sharing practical knowledge on collection development with focus on electronic resources. The IG will work, using email and Connect, to select speakers who will deliver short presentations and then moderate the discussion about workflow and staffing.

- Steven Sowell, Head of Collections & Resource Sharing Department at Oregon State University, volunteered to serve as co-chair and will take over after Annual.

· The discussion on the group’s identity and marketing will resume by email and on the group’s Connect page.
