Approval of Minutes from June 12, 2018 meeting (all agreed)

Old Business

  • Guerilla Marketing and Mixer fund requests

    • The Guerilla Marketing program was only approved for half the cost, so we will have to charge attendees

      • Lorri will send out a survey to gauge interest

      • If we charge $40/person, at least 50 people would have to sign up to cover the cost

      • We could also open the program up to other consortia (PALS Plus, MAIN, etc.).  If we did this we would charge them more than BCCLS members, and BCCLS members would have priority in registering

      • Tentative date - Wednesday, October 3, 2018, 10 am - 4 pm at the Mahwah Library

    • The funding request for the Mixer was denied, so this event will be postponed until 2019

  • Travel collection for eBCCLS

    • Lonely Planet simultaneous use 1 year package with 25 titles, unlimited checkouts

    • Molly will put together a list of suggested titles based on popular locations and publication dates, and then email the committee for feedback and approval

  • Video tutorials

    • Jessica and Leann did the Novelist video tutorial and handouts, the committee agreed it was well done and it will be posted and Lorri will send it out in an ALL message

    • The category in Knowledge Base and Cobalt will be called “Know Your eSources”

    • The committee will aim to do these every other month

    • The next topic will be Rosetta Stone, Julie and Julia will work on this

  • Collection Development Tips

    • Gina did a draft of her tip on Using Simply Reports and Weeding Tips for DVDs

      • This will be moved up to July

    • All other weeding tips will be moved back a month

      • July - Refresh Your DVDs (Gina)

      • August - Monthly Missing Report - How and Why (Lorri)

      • September - Running an Only Holding Report (Lorri)

      • October - DOA Magazines (Julia)

      • November - Duplicate Holdings (Molly)

      • December - Bad Call Numbers (Cathy)

      • January - Weird Statuses (Julie)

  • Adult Performer Database

    • This has been updated recently so the committee will continue to advocate for it

    • Lorri will send out an email reminder for people to add to it


New Business


  • Program in the spring presented by the committee

    • The topic will be Reader's Advisory with a emphasis on how this can help increase circulation

    • Tentative date - Thursday, March 28, 2019 (morning), snow date Thursday, April 4, 2019

  • Bootleg DVDs

    • There have been an increasing number of records for bootleg items being submitted through SkyRiver

    • The committee may send out tips on how to identify these on Amazon

    • Just because an item has a record in SkyRiver doesn't mean it isn't bootleg

    • The World Language committee is looking into this issue as well


Next meeting - Tuesday, August 14, 2018, 10 am at Westwood
