Anita called the meeting to order at .
The CUWL minutes of September 29 and 30, 2003, were approved with one correction: item #8 was amended to read: “Leanne Hansen asked the Directors to email her of any staff (FTE) and student worker reductions and current staffing levels that each had incurred due to the recent budget cuts.” It was also noted that the Colleges have actually lost a half position and that the IAA White Pages, while functional, are not yet available for public use. The minutes were then unanimously approved.
1) Electronic Resource Management Task Force Recommendation #1: Software Purchase – Valerie Malzacher
Valerie summarized the process and some of her experiences thus far. The Task Force moved to approve the intent to award the purchase and implementation of the MetaLib (federated search) and SFX (cross-linking) software from ExLibris. UW System will pick up all installation and first year costs, with the campuses paying annual maintenance and hosting costs thereafter. Considerable discussion ensued, with the note that the hosting costs were estimated conservatively high. The motion carried unanimously.
2) Electronic Resource Management Task Force Recommendation #2: Implementation Plan – Valerie Malzacher
The Task Force moved that the members of the present Task Force be appointed to an Implementation Advisory Committee following successful negotiations with ExLibris and DoIt. The motion carried unanimously.
3) CDC Recommendations – Lorie Docken
The CDC moves the renewal of the following products for 2004:
c) CQ Researcher
d) ACLS History E-book Collection
It was noted that the 2004-05 budget will have a $107,000 to $132,000 shortfall. The motion carried unanimously.
The meeting was adjourned at .
