Meeting minutes

12 July 2007

Members present: Marilyn Ochoa, Carrie Newsome, Jason Fleming, John Nemmers, Rae Jesano, Jimmie Lundgren, Matthew Mariner

Discussion points:

On library pages: 'Help' AND 'Ask a Librarian' buttons; are both necessary. We determined that consolidating the two (migrating the topics in 'Help' to 'Ask a Librarian') would be best.

Side strip: Discussed possibility of organizing a 'task force' to deal exclusively with complexities of reorganizing side strip elements.

Other University websites: look for inspiration in the library websites of other Universities comparable to UF -- glean from them any advents we might be lacking.

EZ proxy use: alert Bill to EZ proxy use

Brown Bag: focus on instructional staff

Rich Bennett: suggest changes to documents detailing proxy procedures for patrons/staff (VPN instructions as well)

Group decided to 'do away' with rank bar in MetaLib search results.
