July department meeting

CMG discussed the agenda for the upcoming department meeting: Connexion tip, department reorganization, ALA highlights, and announcements.

Annual highlights - due August 14.

FY10 goals

CMG reviewed a draft list of FY10 department goals and made revisions as follows:


Uncataloged inventory

Library Administration has requested that the department update the uncataloged inventory.  CMG members will be responsible for contacting assigned areas/curators to find out the latest information. 


CMG reviewed a draft version of the CatMet Services page, which provides information needed for grant proposals and assigning cataloging priorities.


The Catalog Scoop LibGuide was officially launched with the latest Endeca Update e-mail sent to All Library Staff.  In the future, it may be possible for staff to set up an e-mail alert if the page is updated.

Z class

Doug asked if it is still necessary to follow the AlephPro Local Treatment for Z Class Number procedure.  CMG discussed and confirmed that this practice should be continued.  Doug will talk to Paul Lightcap to assure that shelf-ready material with selected Z class numbers are pulled from shipments for reclassification.

Training Committee

Doug announced that Hank has joined the department Training Committee.
