1.  Outlook tips and tricks

Mary Laskowski and Lisa Hinchliffe are both willing to demo some tips and tricks.  Lisa has postponed her sabbatical, and Michael says IT is discussing when to move to the next version of Outlook, so we’ll wait until that is decided before scheduling this session.  Email tips could possibly be sooner, in summer?

2. Customer Service Guidelines (Susan Schnuer and Kelly McCusker)  The Services Advisory Group is working on a draft and hope to have it completed by December, and will need to be vetted by the Library.

7.  GA training for spring

Only one new GA right now.  May have a few hourlies who work in IAS who may need some of the training.  Beth will talk to Steve Witt and Lisa Renee about the IAS folks and the supervisor of the one GA.  Zoe will have the training account number for folks who want to register for webinars, etc.

I am having surgery next week and will be out for 6 to 8 weeks.  We are scheduled for a meeting on Tuesday, January 7th, which partially conflicts with the Library Working Session on Prioritization.  I propose we just cancel our meeting, if that’s okay with everyone.  So the next meeting will be February 4, 2014.
