TS-SIS Serials Committee Meeting
The TS-SIS Serials Committee Meeting was held this morning at 7:30 a.m. in the Convention Center. Under Old Business a report on the Exchange of Duplicates Program was given. There were 36 libraries in the program this year. There was also a report on the work of the Project COUNTER group. They noted that Hein has contact them about becoming COUNTER compliant. We need to speak to our reps at companies, such as CCH and BNA, about providing COUNTER compliant statistics to libraries. Under New Business ideas were discussed for possible program proposals. For TS-SIS sponsorship proposals need to be turned in to the Education Committee by Aug 10. There were ideas about the development of a library of last resort program in coordination with LIPA, what to cut when there is nothing left to cut, and looking at pricing models for electronic resources.
