Patty asked the Committee to address the additional issues. Timeline:by Annual Meeting. Current changes need to be approved by the Regional Councl (3 of 5 regions need to approve the changes). Mary Jayne will handle that. Then they will be posted and announced statewide. The Governing Board and Regional Council will need to approve additional recommendations prior to the Annual Meeting.
Susan Simpson requested information for the training committee concerning Resource Sharing through interlibrary loan and statewide databases. Since the old committees are inactive, Lesley Boughton responded with a letter stating she would reactivate committees for ILL and database resources. Brian pointed out there is conflicting information about who is on the Resource Sharing Committee. Susan Richards made the following motion: The WYLD governing board encourages and applauds the reformation of the Interlibrary loan sub committee and the Resource Sharing Committee. Deb Sturman seconded the motion. Motion passed.
Patty reported that Beth did not have new information to report. Patty asked Des about Journal Linker. Refer to email from Des for more information. Committee report is online.
Brenda has not been approached by anyone to ask for changes.
The committee has nothing to report.
Karen’s report is available online.
Historically regional minutes are not being posted, and Mary Jayne is trying to reactivate that habit. Please post minutes. Region 2 has been very active. Region 3 is planning a February meeting.
Patty said the handbook is currently not on the website because it has not been approved by Governing Board. Marci said some structural cleanup is needed. The Local Arrangements section is confusing. Katie offered to clean the document up. She will reorganize the document then distribute it for a vote via email. Brian offered to assist from the WYLD office point of view. Timeline: end of January.
This could be an email vote.
Patty encouraged all to attend. McMurry money is a resource for travel expenses.
Patty adjourned the meeting at 9:38 a.m.
Respectfully submitted by Terri Lesley, Temporary Recorder
