The meeting was called to order at 1:35 p.m. The minutes of the August 29, 2002 meeting were approved.
Pat discussed recent changes to iPac. All library iPacs have now been configured, for those LINC libraries with a PAC port. We just installed Release 2.02, which had over 400 bug fixes. A link to local bookstores is not yet available but we are working on it, as well as a Z39.50 connection to WorldCat. We also think we have found a solution to limiting Internet access out of the catalog, for those that want to do this. We hope to have the memo about the release of iPac out to directors in January, with implementation beginning in February.
A first draft of the Request for Proposal Migration to Horizon was distributed to members of LINC Policy Council previous to the meeting. Pat reviewed the timetable and process for completing the RFP. The draft RFP has been posted on the LTLS web site, along with an online comment form. Also, two library staff input session are planned for January so that additional input can be given about what should be included in the RFP. Technical reviewers, with experience in particular areas, will assist in reading through certain sections of the RFP. The technical reviewers will come from those who attend the RFP input sessions. Plans are to have the final draft ready for approval by the end of January.
The meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.
