CatMet Management Group Minutes
May 1, 2013
Attendees: Peter Bushnell, Jimmie Lundgren, Hikaru Nakano, Betsy Simpson, Doug Smith, Priscilla Williams
CMG finalized the 2013/2014 department goals. Betsy will notify the department, and unit/area heads will determine unit/area specific goals.
CMG decided to discharge the Training Committee and rely on ad hoc task groups to address training needs. We'll reassess this strategy as the year goes on. Betsy will e-mail the committee members to thank them and officially discharge the group.
Moving forward, unit/area heads will solicit training ideas and share with CMG. The Aleph@UF libguide will include a training suggestion box. CMG members will send training session requests (e.g., webinars) directly to HR with cc to department chair (per HR request).
Unit/area heads will discuss layout and functionality with staff. Betsy will set up editing permission for CMG members and other staff who need it. CMG brainstormed possible changes to tab organization.
Staff are busy with the training modules. Jimmie volunteered to work on a presentation for public services staff. The idea is to have a brief overview at a Users Services Forum meeting as well as a more detailed recorded Elluminate session.
Betsy and Gerald attended a meeting on May 1 for the branches and tech services staff to discuss procedures for transferring items to storage.
