WYLD Office: Brian presented a report on the Training Committee's survey results on the use of the Java WorkFlows (JWF) client. These results indicate great momentum in the adoption of the JWF client for everyday library use. He also reported that the new WYLD Office JWF blog is helping answer questions that came about from the survey. Brian reported that WYLD Office is working with the new South High School, in Cheyenne, to prepare them for inclusion as a WYLDCat member library. WYLD Office staff and Mary Jayne are attending the upcoming SirsiDynix conference. This conference gives the attendees many good resources and ideas for upcoming upgrades/changes. The next upgrade will be to Symphony 3.3.1 but it is too early to recommend an upgrade date. We will have more info before the Annual meeting in Rawlins this June. Brian continues to work with the state CIO’s office to purchase the 2 new servers that are needed. He plans to have them purchased and operational by early March of this year.

Strategic Plan: Discussion of the first two Strategic Plan points. Committee looked at the purpose and decided the best course of action to review and implement plan. Strategic Areas: Governance and Technology- A sub-committee was formed to look at these two areas: Mary Jayne, Sally, Kristin, and one other member TBA.

In Strategic Area Technology, sub-committee will work closely with WYLD Office to be sure we have updated information after SirsiDynix conference.

Mary Jayne will have Susan Simpson dial in on next meeting to discuss Strategic Area: Training.

New Business: Kristin asked that we look at one the WYLD Card Policy to determine if each library's boards had to approve the Statewide Borrower policies outlined at http://will.state.wy.us/wyld/network/documents/WYLDcard.html
