RUSA MARS Executive Committee (Machine-Assisted Reference Section) Committee
Here is a link to the recording: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4nehNxDgJtabXhIODZ0TXBzZ1k/view?usp=sharing (this is too large for Connect. I’ll post this to Connect as well.)
I also attached the chat log from the meeting since a few attendees did not have mics.
I have not had a chance to go through the recording and pull out notes… If anyone who plans to listen to the recording might be willing to do minutes from it, let me know (and thank you!). If not, I hope to get to it on Friday this week.
If I recall correctly, one action item for the group was to review your committee charges on the web site and in the handbook and let Nancy Cunningham and myself know if you have any changes you’d like made. The due date for this was by MidWinter conference, January 8, 2016.
Just in case anyone needs them, I’ve also attached the documents sent earlier for the meeting.
Earlier today I forwarded an email from RUSA regarding an interest group pilot - here's a link to the document on Connect (http://connect.ala.org/node/246184) – I believe this will have some bearing on our discussion around interest groups.
I think that’s all for now. Let me know if you have any questions, general comments, or if there is anything I can do.
Have a great evening & week.
