1. Draft Document, “Acceptable Use of Library Technologies.”
Beth S. led this discussion. This document was formerly part of a larger policy, but has been split into two. The other half is now “UIUC Library Electronic Resource Use Policy for Library Patrons” (discussed next). Nearly a decade old (prior update was 1999), this document was getting creaky. There are references to University Policies (with links), so full details are often found in the original campus policy.
Suggestions for improvement included:
– add staff to the policy (not just for patrons)
– move second sentence in second paragraph to the first sentence, strengthening the point about licensed and copyrighted use policies.
– remove Section 2
– remove age limits in Section 4
– add wording: “The library does not censor content.”
This policy will be redrafted based on our suggestions. A second draft will be sent to AC members for distribution to divisions. Our next meeting will review Draft 2 and any suggestions from the field.
2. Draft Document “UIUC Library Electronic Resource Use Policy for Library Patrons.”
Tom T. led this discussion. There are again references to campus policies where needed. Additional detail can be found in these related policies. Suggestions included:
– eliminate first sentence (a single paragraph)
– in Section 2, define 2 broad types: licensed and copyrighted materials.
– Send after approval as an FYI to University Counsel
– Add a point about consequences of violating license agreements and cite policies of Student Affairs Office
– Include the role of the CIO’s Office of Security in responding to inappropriate use of e-resources.
This policy will also be redrafted based on our suggestions. A second draft will be sent to AC members for distribution to divisions. Our next meeting will review Draft 2 and any suggestions from the field.
3. Discussion of the need for additional staff training in regards to our security procedures.
Scott W. led this discussion. AC agreed that it was time to resynchronize our Library Security Guard manual and procedures with what library staff are aware of and therefore will know when to call Library and/or Campus Security. We discussed an open forum to gather ideas and assess the situations taking place. Updating the library “flip chart” is also part of this, as it updating the Library Security Guard manual. Beth suggest we ask for volunteers from library staff who might be interested in this topic and willing to work on these updates.
4. Update on the Library’s migration to the illinois.edu domain name.
Beth let AC know via email before the meeting that John Weible had addressed this topic recently. Here is a portion of her email with the link:
“John posted an update to the Library in October that applies to our portions of the illinois.edu migration. It is still accurate. http://www.library.uiuc.edu/it/isd/news/illinois.edu-1.html
Additional details not mentioned there:
–Individuals’ email address listings were switched some weeks ago in the Library’s Employee Directory to the illinois.edu domain.
–Library IT will be able to start the multi-part project for dual-DNS hosting of library servers soon after the System Engineer position is filled (interviews were last week).
Beth also said at the meeting that the “transition of our servers has not yet started.” The group also noted that netfiles and webtools have not yet moved to the new domain.
David announced that all media items in the catalog will be switched from Media Scheduling to Voyager Circ (using short loans for advance booking) over Winter Break. This means that media will now show up in My Account and can be renewed under certain circumstances (not at renewal limit for item type, no advance bookings on item, etc.). In order to facilitate this switch, beginning finals week (Thurs 12/11) all media items will be building use only until January 16th so that they can be re-catalogued.
