The meeting was called to order at 1:30 by Scott Drone-Silver.
There was discussion about the wording on the discussion of local holds in the minutes from March 16, 2005. The minutes were then approved as written.
Pat gave an update on the process for paying Dynix for their services, pending functionality and response time. There was a discussion about improving response time outside of the LTLS network and the possibility of creating a method for gauging performance.
Pat gave an update on the process for moving to the new shared itype policy. Four regional meetings have been held and we are beginning to get mapping information in from library directors.
Pat gave a report on Remote Patron Authentication (RPA). RPA will provide statistics based on library. Through WebFeat, it also helps limit some of the Illinois resident access only databases from outside users, and it will allow individual libraries to add new databases (for a fee) to WebFeat.
There was also a discussion about a shared electronic resources purchase. Marsha Grove volunteered her staff, Nannette Wargo-Donahue, to serve on the committee.
Maria gave an update on the status of PromptCat. OCLC has activated the accounts and B&T is working on activating those accounts as well.
HIP 4.0 and Horizon 7.4 have both been delayed until August of 2005. LTLS has volunteered to be a BETA site for Horizon 8.0. Some of the things known about the new product are: change to a platform-independent client and a new electronic resources management module.
Since LTLS staff are going to a preview of Horizon 8.0 at ALA, some of the questions to be asked include: What is Electronic Resource Management, sending notices via text and/or instant messaging services, notices, ownership of records, reports that have to be regenerated at LTLS if something goes wrong, local control over message text, homeroom module for schools on WebReporter, LDAP access to patron info, and serials copy records.
The next meeting is scheduled for July 13, 2005 at 1:30.
The meeting was adjourned at 3:10.
