5. Access Services Report
There was much discussion about the E-reserves versus print reserves model and permanent reserves versus course reserves. Some EC members felt it might make sense to try certain aspects of the implementation plan, and that perhaps a function other than consolidated reserves would be the best place to start. The Access Services Task Force will be asked to further consider options, talk to heads of libraries to get additional input, and supply more detailed plan for some pilot implementation plans.
The task force will be asked to propose a pilot project to determine how it would work, what problems might ensue, and look at it from a users viewpoint and from the Library’s viewpoint. The TF will also be asked to address media services and the costs for making the proposed changes.
6. Scholarly Commons Report
After discussion the Committee decided to ask Bob Burger to come to the next meeting to provide further information, including schematics.
