  1. Question Time

John – the state budget will likely approve a 5% increase in state funding, which means approximately 4% increase in state funding for our university. The state funding is only a fraction of our budget.

 

John attended the Big Ten Academic Alliance Directors meeting last week. They discussed possible negotiations with a publisher. A proposal was presented to use some of the reserves to fund a data analyst for a year, to work with Matt Wilmott, the data analyst at CDL. We would work with the University of California system to try and secure grant funding to generalize this capacity.

 

On the second day of the meeting, the directors discussed a white paper on a discovery to delivery (D2D) strategy, written by a group led by Lorcan Dempsey The notion is that the BTAA might address D2D on a grander scale. There was broad endorsement of this idea.

 

Clifford Lynch, the Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), will be visiting the University on June 6 and would like to talk with EC and the AULs.

 

David reported that Chris Prom asked that if any of the innovation fund proposals include a technology focus, that it be sent to him and Tracy Tolliver for input. David will send an additional message out to LibNews with a note to have IT endorse any proposals that may affect the unit.
