- Exploring areas of VRT media interests and programming starting with survey
- VRT Membership Media Interest and Engagement Survey Discussion
- VRT leadership handbook creation
- Discussion of workshop proposal for 2014 ALA Annual "Managing locally-produced born-digital media content." Please view the attached proposal document (2014vrt-workshop-draft0.2.doc) before the meeting if possible. If you are unable to attend, feel free to send Scott Spicer any comments you have on the workshop in advance. Your comments will be included in the discussion.
- We have 103 people -up from less than 80 last time - on the Multimedia Production DG. I think that if I have this many people interested in a discussion over email, we NEED to talk about related programming at the conference. We can possibly co-sponsor something with the INFO-Commons DG since Shelly has many people from there on the DG
- Discussion of ALA Connect or ALA VRT pages as site of record for VRT documentation.
- Scott met impromptu with Danielle Alderson to discuss potential refinement of ALA support for the VRT. Danielle suggestions included, moving to l-serve for Executive Board discussion (rather than e-mail, having ALA auto-add/delete members from VRT l-serve, possibly have a note sent out automatically to new members and members leaving - Danielle was not completely certain if they could take this on, and name change (Danielle's suggestion).
- Name change discussion. (Do we want to spend time on this or table for Midwinter?)
Discussion on VRT handbook creation for responsibilities, dates of Chair, Chair-Elect, Past Chair
