Resource Sharing Minutes

November 13, 2002 Meeting Notes


Attendees: Lorraine Smi, Jean Marie Cole, Gillian Leonard, Ann Close, Dawn Geurds, Joe Nash, Jo-Ann Benedetti, Geoff Kirkpatrick, Barbara Kendall, Gordon Noble

ILL Contacts: Rachel distributed the ILL Contacts sheet and asked for corrections. Noralee will update the listings as needed.

COIL Update: Visit www.cdlc.org/cdlc/illser.html for the new Committee on Interlibrary Loan web pages that include forms, guidelines, standards, codes, etc. Also, there will be a new COIL award to be given to an ILL staff person. Watch the COIL pages for more information.

UAlbany and RPI Web Requests: Both UAlbany and RPI have implemented web-based ILL requests using ILLiad, at http://illiad.Albany.edu/illiad/lendinglogon.html and http://illiad.lib.rpi.edu/illiad/logon.html. Call the libraries first to set up usernames and passwords. UAlbany says that they no longer need to be regarded as the “last resort” lending library. Web-based requests sent to them will have the same priority as GAC requests.

Revised Patron Registration Cards: Beginning in January, we will be looking at the patron registration cards and the screens to consider revisions to both so that they match. NOTE: Bring sample cards and screen shots to the meeting.

2003 Meetings:
Thursday, January 16, 2003 from 9-11 AM at UHLS
Thursday, March 20, 2003 from 9-11 AM at UHLS
Thursday, May 2003 from 9-11 AM at UHLS

New Business: The group agreed that we need to meet with the Implementation Team to help us come up with a list of questions to consider. There are many issues that need discussion, such as “proxy” cardholders, X cards, multiple barcodes to the same account (“family” cards), and others, since epixtech has the capability to do so much more than DRA.

Question: When will the “test” databases be available?
