Windows 7 migration

In spite of a few difficulties, overall the Windows 7 migration went well.  Greg’s help was applauded by all!


Shared Bib

FCLA is doing a new merge.  When it’s ready, it will be time to do some more data review.  Jane Anne will gather input at the next CMG meeting regarding TKRs and the list of tags to be removed from the merge.


OCLC Bib Note is being discussed by the Shared Bib Implementation Team.  UF is the only library using the service currently.



All workers at ALF have been asked to wear closed toe shoes to be in compliance with OSHA.


Good progress is being made cataloging the DPI Center of Excellence government documents.


Stodocs catalogers are working out details related to cataloging Department of Defense loose-leaf publications.  Original volumes were cataloged as monographs and trayed.  Changes issued later need to be described and shelved in a systematic way.



The department’s participation in the Library of Congress ECIP program for the University Press of Florida moved to production last month.     


OCLC RDA plans

CMG reviewed OCLC’s plans for RDA ( and agreed that the approach seems reasonable.


HDF/ALF charrette

Jimmie, Priscilla, and Betsy are going to attend a charrette on 3/8/12 related to the design of the High Density Facility (HDF) and renovation of ALF.  The architects and engineers are meeting with staff who will be located at the facility and representatives from other departments were invited to attend.  No construction funds have been released yet.


Discretionary fund

A $1,000 discretionary fund is available to the department.  CMG discussed the possibility of bringing in a SCCTP Integrating Resources trainer and attending rare books training, among other ideas.


FEFDL grant

Doug, Cindy, and Betsy have cost-share responsibilities on a grant proposal to expand the Florida Electronic Federal Depository Library (FEFDL), which is to be submitted this spring.  If awarded, it would start in the fall.
