Committee members discussed options for improving communication among SUL libraries and with FCLA. Ideas included:
- Project management software
- RSS feeds
- Posting SUL committee decisions in one secure central location
- Wikis; consolidating existing FCLA wikis into a single searchable wiki
- Drupal (http://drupal.org/)
Jason will send results of the Library 2.0 Working group survey to Claire Dygert
3. Methods to drop/add titles or packages within consortium (particularly duplicate resources)
Discussion. UF will coordinate with other SUL libraries when swapping electronic titles per new Elsevier agreement.
4. Statistics from FCLA (usage, ARL, etc.)
Discussion; Possible FCLA stats projects include:
- An SUL 'data warehouse' for statistics for shared resources;
- A project to gather and publish ARL statistics;
- Reporting (title lists, ARL stats, etc.): Claire will suggest to FCLA that a report requirement form be developed; eventual goal is for a suite of reports similar to the ARROW reports available under NOTIS. In the mean time, Jason can generate title lists and the like upon request.
5. Serials Solutions vs. Verde comparison
- Rich distributed a chart comparing how Serials Solutions and Ex Libris products interoperate.
- Development and workflow issues with Verde; consensus was that Verde seems "hardwired to be complicated".
