Agenda was approved with one addition: to discuss whether we would meet at the WYLD Annual Meeting
Minutes were approved with one addition: Cheat sheets will be created as technotes and two corrections to spelling: Brian Greene and Kay Carlson.
No new requests for circ map simplifying.
Database Guidelines: There were no more comments on the revised version. Bobbi was commended for a job well done. Sukey moved and Edie seconded that the WYLD Database guidelines be forwarded to the WYLD Regional Council and then the Governing Board. The motion passed unanimously.
Cheat Sheets: Bobbi said she had not received any comments/suggestions from the committee for the cheat sheets. Sukey said she would send Bobbi some. It was reiterated that the cheat sheet would not appear in the guidelines.
Item Types: Many people misunderstood what they were supposed to comment on. Sukey moved and Donna seconded that dropping LANGUAGE from the list of proposed changes because libraries used this type to provide longer checkout periods for language tapes. The motion passed unanimously. The committee instructed Des to implement the remaining eight changes.
Indexing Committee: The Indexing Committee meets next on Wednesday, March 30.
Training Sessions: Susan has not received a reply to her letter about WYLD serials and database guidelines training that was sent to the Training Committee. Susan offered to have committee members help Bobbi with the Database Guidelines updates at the WYLD Annual Meeting, and it was decided to defer decisions until more was known about what was involved.
The committee discussed some problems in the database. It was moved and seconded that the Online Quality Committee Chair and the WYLD Manager call the technical services librarian at the library concerned to discuss these problems. Motion carried.
Laramie County requested a new non-standard GMD: [game (Xbox)]. The committee discussed this request and had several questions. Susan will talk with Scott and report back.
The Committee voted by email to accept the new GMD Xbox after the meeting.
WYLD Annual Meeting: Five committee members are sure they are attending, three don't know and one wasn't present. It was agreed that Susan and Brian would buy the committee members a drink to celebrate a job well done.
The next meeting will take place Thursday, April 28th at 3:30 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Sukey Hohl
