1. Welcome and intros

Attending: Roxanne Bogucka, Jamie Conklin, Tyler Dzuba, Ashley Ireland, Edward Kownslar, Amy Prendergast, Hannah Winkler

Committee members stated their institutions and job titles, then everyone reported on whether they were attending ALA Midwinter, ACRL, and ALA Annual.


2. Sub-area reports

a. STS-L and STS-C: There are 1588 subscribers to STS-L. Sending out list usage guidelines a few times a year seems to have taken care of the inappropriate/ILL request posts that were appearing on the list. STS-C has 42 subscribers.

b. STS webmaster: Ashley Ireland will join Denyse Sturges as co-webmaster.

c. STS wiki watcher: Jamie Conklin will assume wiki-watching duties.

d: STS social media: Hannah Winkler has assumed social media duties.

e. STS-Publications co-chair: Amy Prendergast volunteered to be the co-chair.


3. Co-editor needed for STS Signal

Edward Kownslar described the duties and time commitment for STS Signal. The committee endorsed the idea that there should be two co-editors, who can learn the ropes from EK. Amy Prendergast and Tyler Dzuba are the new co-editors, and EK will contact them in early spring to begin their training.


4. Brainstorming initiatives for STS-P

The committee discussed the possibility of a project or process to improve discovery of and access to STS committee publications.


5. Member news…

No one had any news to report.


Meeting adjourned, 2:52 p.m.
