Adult Services Minutes
Attendees: Denise Coblish, Zina Shevchik, Mary Trev Thomas, Maria Buhl, Sue Dague, Meg Maurer, Judie Harren, Jo-Ann Benedetti.
Instant Messaging: Denise Coblish had prepared a presentation on computer mediated communication. There are many advantages to using instant messaging: community awareness, the ability to have multiple conversations, a feeling of immediacy, multi-device compatibility, speed, and large files can be transmitted. It is used in dorms, businesses, telecommuting, for meetings and planning sessions. Using IM may be the communication tool that replaces email. Copies of her presentation and the handouts are available by emailing Rachel.
2004 Adult Services Advisory Council Meetings: We discussed the schedule of meetings and programs for the coming year, assigned host libraries, and selected topics. Each host library will contact Rachel with confirmation of a date and time.
