CatMet Management Group Minutes
June 6, 2012
Attendees: Peter Bushnell, Jane Anne Carey, Jimmie Lundgren, Betsy Simpson, Doug Smith, Priscilla Williams
Catalogers will need to place Binding items on a new shelf so Processing can property stamp them before they are set aside for Preservation to pick-up. [Per post-meeting conversation, Preservation will do the tattle taping.]
Greg provided a list of AlephPro procedures, which Jane Anne volunteered to dedup. Betsy will send a message to the department asking for volunteers to review and confirm/revise/archive the procedures.
- Pre-merge clean-up is in the final stages. A list of post-merge clean-up is being compiled, and additions are welcome.
- Training sessions, the clean-up day, and other non-Aleph activities are scheduled for the Aleph downtime.
- The Shared Bib Guidelines will be ready for dissemination soon. The Metadata Subcommittee is finalizing the latest version with the understanding that it will be a working document with revisions as needed.
- Post-merge problems should be reported to supervisors. FCLA may want SULs to send problems to the existing Shared Bib e-mail list.
Branch moves and serials check-in
Priscilla and Pat Reakes are planning to meet soon to discuss the branch moves. Also, Rachel Schipper contacted Diane Bruxvoort about a planning meeting with TSS representatives to discuss the moves as well as serials check-in.
A detailed OPS request was submitted to Rachel for Stodocs. No word yet on an allocation.
