At this time Richard Naylor and Geoff Kirkpatrick gave a PowerPoint presentation of questions to ask of the new system and how to test.

Continued last month’s discussion of standards led by Nancy.

Discussion of the fact that this is a very complicated issue and consensus will be very difficult to reach. Further discussion is needed. Next month we will discuss no card checkouts, telephone renewals, and fines. (Brief refresher of current policy – fine money is kept at collecting library, money for damaged or lost books is sent to owning library.)
