January SEC renewal recommendations:
The CDC approved everything for renewal except CJA, but that was based on the wrong stats. A number of campuses are looking at purchasing their own license for 2009. Richard will bring our recommendations to CUWL. Not all of the renewals could be activated because we are waiting for quotes from Emerald, Institute of Physics, American History & Life and New England Journal of Medicine.
Our recommendation to CUWL-- the ones we don’t have final numbers yet: do we endorse regardless or do we approve up to a certain dollar amount and revisit if over that? This question was not answered.
Richard will prepare written report for CUWL and will run it by this committee first. (renewals, Library Dynamics, Doc Delivery)
Document delivery project update:
Credit cards now in use, more opportunities for purchasing documents, we will see a continued expansion of the use of that service in the next several months.
The committee discussed the CUWL meeting on Nov. 10th-11th which Richard will be attending.
Next conference call: Dec. 3rd, 9:00 a.m.
Discussion for future meetings: of Library Dynamics renewal, do we recommend continue with it? We have two year commitment, and then we will reevaluate it.
Blackwell evaluation, using their data to evaluate duplication, etc.
Meeting adjourned at 9:40 a.m.
