Brief circ records are not appearing in MnPALS Plus at this time if a library is not using the Course Reserves module. Discussion was held on whether there are reasons why they should not be moved in to Plus. Motion made by Randi Madisen, seconded by Jan Carey, to bring the brief circ records in to MnPALS Plus. Unanimously approved.
6. Reference Workday Planning
The plan is to hold a spring workday, possibly in conjunction with Systems. Discussed whether to have an online session, in-person session, or possibly a combination with an online day followed by an in-person session at a later date. The steering committee will work on dates, format, and content.
7. Other - Elections
Currently the Reference Steering Committee consists of Ruth Anderson (MHS) and Pete McDonnell (SMSU), Diane Pollock (UCR), Amy Naughton (MCAD), Martha Hardy (Metropolitan State), and Perry Madden (PALS liaison). Pete and Ruth are stepping down. Need to elect two new members – one from State Government and Special Libraries and one at-large. The steering committee will then elect convener(s). Main duties of members are to plan for workdays and user group meetings. Two members of the group attend the MnPALS Libraries User Council.
Ruth Anderson moved, with second from Orrin Ausen, that we accept the nomination of Anna Hulseberg (Gustavus Adolphus). Unanimously approved.
Still seeking one more member, preferably from a state or special library.
Motion to adjourn by Orrin Ausen. Second by Randi Madisen. Approved. Meeting ended at 11:50 AM
