Notes:

  • Media Literacy:  in progress. Alessia will work with PSU colleagues to remove the hierarchy structure

  • On the subject pages, change the name of the first box to “About”.   Refer to the Starting Points page in the About if there are no subject specific databases listed;  if there are subject specific Databases listed, link to the Starting Points page in that box.

  • Public Speaking; Health Communication; others?;  HS’s students will remove subject keywords as assets and add [in Worldcat?].  Subheadings can be unlinked (for narrowing searches).

  • Discussion:  concern over list of book titles --- AZ decided to list 10 seminal works

  • Gradual goal:  change boxes from content types to topic areas (instead of books and journals, have Media Law, First Amendment, etc.)

  • 10/27/17 minor edits to the Pub Guides Checklist (Google Doc version)
    10/25/17 CM emailed the Pub Comm about our Guides Checklist; response:

If you are doing a complete overhaul of the content of the checklist, the Publications Committee will do a thorough

review and send back any recommendations for changes. If you are just doing some light touch ups or rearranging the order of the content, then we will do just a quick glance for a pair of fresh eyes to catch any grammatical stuff. Just send us a final draft when you are finished and we will take a look at it.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

Damecia, Cathy? (Incomplete)

    1. New media / cyberculture page.  Discuss and decide whether to rename or integrate into other guides.  

                  i.  Video games, social reality, network --- pieces we can include in other pages, e.g.     interpersonal communication?

                  ii.     One renaming possibility:  Computer-mediated communications. (define?  Email, chat, social networking, com in VR)

    1. Dated or Duplicated Assets:  email the committee before deleting? Or use personal judgment?
    2. Database description.  Copy text from vendor. OK to include multiple database versions (historical and current indexing)?  Could refer to alternate versions in the description….
    3. Standardization for naming boxes? Encourage:  content description rather than format. Ex. Film studies websites:  make awards, actors, films, etc. Standard box names: Journals, Subjects, etc.  -- these have been carried over from the wiki.  Subject Headings as a box name?  Subjects and Keywords.  Link out to LC Headings.
    4. Deadline for publication?
  1. LONG TERM / BIG PICTURE COMMITTEE GOALS
    1. Collaboration with the CMC Committee:  assist with reviewing subject pages of LRCS. Offer to review their J-standards / Framework.
    2. EBSS: recommend the section create a separate free-standing vendor relations committee.
    3. Change the ERCS Committee Charge?  Removing vendor relations (for discussion);
    4. Change the ERCS Committee Name? (Suggested by previous member Sharon Black)
  2. Other business
