Miranda Shake, Chair, called the meeting to order at 9:35. The minutes of the 11/17/2010 meeting were discussed. Jacob indicated a change to second bullet in minutes ("borrowers can be purged if they have a lost item") should have "and claimed return" at the end. The minutes were then approved.Additional discussion then began on the previous meeting's discussion of the borrower purge criteria. Discussion centered mainly on whether to delete if lost and claimed returned and allow deletions for other library's fines. The existing policy, with motion from Miranda, second by Bev, was approved as follows:
Another item from the previous meeting was a discussion on increasing the length of circ history (retaining patron information for a longer period). Issues of patron confidentiality mean this data isn't kept forever, but the current 7 days is not enough to track damaged items. The members asked if there could be a test of this for a month. Pat will announce the test in LINC update and change the setting to a 21 day period, then we will reassess.
Another agenda item was a discussion of security levels. Historically, receipt printer settings have been available for Level 4 circulation only. With the increase in receipt printers, this functionality needs to be accessed by Level 3 circulation. Also, there was another request to allow item status updates at Level 2 circulation. Deb L moved, second by Deb S, to allow this change. The motion carried.
Pat reported briefly on the LINC regional meetings that have been held, as well as a quick update on the southern system automation group's activities.
The next meeting is scheduled for May 11, 9:30 - 11:00. The meeting was adjourned at 11:12.
