DMAG-March 312010

Doe/Moffitt Advisory Group March 31, 2010 Meeting

Action Items:

Monographic Series Loan Period Change

  • Mark Marrow will meet with Charis Takaro and Penny Bertrang to determine characteristics of catalog records that distinguish monographic series from other serials to implement the change of loan periods for monographic series. Beth encouraged Mark to contact Kathryn Wayne and other members of the task force to help with implementation if needed.

S&E Budgets

  • Beth will follow up with Allan Urbanic, Myrtis Cochran and Imani Abalos about the S&E current expenditures for their three departments.
  • Beth will follow up with Elise Woods about the feasibility of date due slips being centralized for ordering and payment.

Gardner Stacks Statement

  • Allan Urbanic and Myrtis Cochran will revise a draft statement that describes the Gardner Stacks collections in terms of subjects, formats, languages, and scope, and documents key decisions such as criteria to determine selection for shelving at NRLF, loan periods, multiple copies to accommodate high use, library use only, and sub-collections shelved behind the circulation desk. The draft statement will be sent to DMAG for preview before being shared more broadly with dmstaff@ for comment.
