CatMet Management Group Minutes

August 17, 2011

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

Most of the meeting was a discussion with Dean Russell about Storage-related topics, the Digital Library Center, and planning for Library East.  Discussions are ongoing about the future of Library East with many decisions yet to be made.  Although it is still the case that Acquisitions and Cataloging are expected to be moved out of the building at some point, it is uncertain when that will happen and, to date, no facility has been identified.

Storage projects

CMG identified the following current Storage projects:

Connexion upgrade
IT is going to try to upgrade Connexion now rather than waiting for the new computers to arrive.


Only items with gift slips should be considered a gift when running the stats macro.  Doug will work on getting gift slips to use with the Hildebrand and Women in Development collections housed in the alcove.


Lila Sadkin, MLS graduate, is a volunteer who started in the summer.  2-3 other volunteers/interns, all UF undergraduates, are expected for fall term: Hillary Arieux, Lisabeth Hernandez, and possibly Kristen Schwartz.

Career Resource Center

The library is in the process of setting up UF's Career Resource Center as an affiliated library.
