Note: Recommendations should be submitted to Organizations & Bylaws. *: No

Work accomplished since last scheduled meeting.*: We continue to work towards compiling our list of notable recordings of the year. Communication is happening through email in preparation for Midwinter next month. I hope to have a discussion at our meetings about suggesting a change to the manual (regarding the timeline for member suggestions).

Summarize discussion, decisions reached, and follow-up action needed (objectives, timetable, and assignments) since your last meeting.*: We continue to evaluate recordings for inclusion on our discussion list.

This list will also be of use to library workers serving children and increasing access to struggling readers.

Please list other ALSC committees you think you could collaborate with on issues or projects to help further your work::

Do you have any suggestions for future education topics, publications, or resources (such as toolkits) to be developed based on the committee’s work? Please be as detailed as possible.: Not at this time.

If you are a virtual committee or task force, what is your primary method for holding meetings or communicating?:

When you communicate electronically, how are you preserving the work of the committee for the next committee?*: Saving emails in folder to forward to next chair.

Note: Recommendations should be submitted to Organizations & Bylaws. *: No
Work accomplished since last scheduled meeting.*: We have been working hard to evaluate audiobook and music recordings. There have been many emails flying as we strive to identify the best of the year.
Also, the above question about reviewing the committee function statement gives rise to a question about ours, and whether it is time for it to be updated. I plan to speak with my new PGC about it.
Summarize discussion, decisions reached, and follow-up action needed (objectives, timetable, and assignments) since your last meeting.*: We continue to evaluate recordings and communicate about questions that come up concerning them.
