LINC FINANCIAL REPORT Pat announced that there is approximately $418,000 in the Automation Equity Fund.
FY2009 ANNUAL REPORT Pat Boze reviewed the accomplishments in the LINC 2009 Annual Report powerpoint that is now available on the web site. Accomplishments for last year included automating an additional 10 libraries, setting up home room, reserve room, and patron self-registration, and upgrading the Horizon products during the year. LINC Policy Council worked on more consistent circulation policies, and amended community resource, cataloging, and acquisitions policies.
RECOMMENDATIONS FROM LINC POLICY COUNCIL LINC Policy Council had two recommendations for LINC Directors Group, which were presented to the group as two action items.
Action #2010-2 was considered first, which was a recommendation to prepare an RFP (Request for Proposal) with the purpose of requesting information that will be used in the decision on migrating to a new automation system. The action item was discussed briefly and then approved, with a motion from Marsha Grove and a second from Jacob Roskovensky. Pat asked for volunteers to serve on an organizational committee: Miranda Shake, Marsha Grove, Jacob Roskovensky, and Deb Lissak volunteered at the meeting.
Action #2010-1 was considered next. After considerable discussion, the Action Item was changed as follows: LINC Directors Group approves the creation of an Ad Hoc committee to examine the borrower circulation as a component of the LINC Cost Sharing formula, with a report to be presented to LINC Directors Group at its spring, 2010 meeting. Upon motion by Scott Drone-Silvers, second by Barb Nolan, this action was approved. Rick Balsamello, Laura Dayton, Scott Drone-Silvers, and Susan McKinney volunteered to serve on this committee.
Pat Boze gave a quick review of the WorldCat Local and Quick Start products. Quick Start is now a free product and will be set up for all of the LINC libraries. This work will be done by LTLS project staff working on the WorldCat Local project. Emails will be sent to directors when the product configuration is done.
