CatMet Management Group Minutes

April 3, 2013

Attendees: Peter Bushnell, Jane Anne Carey, Jimmie Lundgren, Hikaru Nakano, Betsy Simpson, Doug Smith, Priscilla Williams, Naomi Young

RDA implementation

Modules 1-6 will follow the series bridge training.  Priscilla will make a recommendation regarding Modules 5-6 (Authorities I and II), and Betsy will send a schedule to department.

FY14 goals for division meeting

No feedback has been received on the department's draft goals.  The goals submitted by other division departments will be discussed at the April department meeting. 

Training Committee

CMG brainstormed possible changes with the Training Committee, including using ad hoc task groups instead of a formal committee, but no decisions were made and discussion will continue.


CMG reviewed a mock-up LibGuide as a replacement for AlephPro and agreed that it has potential.  LibGuides have a number of advantages over the current AlephPro: customizable, searchable, comment boxes, easy to copy/paste from AlephPro, etc.  Each unit/area will compile a list of the procedures used currently, which will help identify procedures that can be archived.   

Branch periodicals
Naomi and Priscilla will schedule a meeting with Library West to discuss issues related to locating annuals in GEN instead of PER shelving. Doug is working out details with AFA and Education. 

Music CDs and DVDs

AFA is circulating music CDs and DVDs.
