Discussion items

  • I don’t know if this should go under ‘new business’ or if it should count under the budget discussion:  We should discuss and vote if possible on further support of the Spectrum Scholarship.
  • Stipends for elected positions(submitted by Tracey)
  • Pete Reehling's journal is about to launch, "Applied GIS: Library & Information Science Section".  The primary submission is a map or GIS project, any text portion would supplement the map or dataset rather than the traditional 'other-way-around'.  Pete invites MAGIRT to take a role in this, and the possibilities are many.  We can be a source of peer reviewers, we can be 'co-publisher' (what that would mean I don't know, we could be 'sponsor' (what that would mean I don't know).   Pete would like us to tell him what we want our role to be.
