Demonstration of SCORE Model and NYSCIS-Sue Bartle w/Terry Sember

The purpose of SLS Consortium of Online Resources for Education (SCORE) is to provide group pricing with oversight by the distributing agency (School Library Systems) to member libraries across New York State. SCORE provides the blueprint for data collection to help maximize purchasing power.

The Vendor Management System was specifically designed and built by Chakra Communications to meet the needs of the members of the School Library Systems Association (SLSA).

The Steering Committee discussed the appropriateness and potential of a SCORE model to the NYSCIS idea.

NOVELNY Best Practices Survey-Christina Ryan-Linder

Ms. Linder discussed a survey she prepared to primarily harvest anecdotes and stories from librarian interaction with patrons using NOVELNY. See: www.surveymonkey.com/s/novelny

Action Item: Please take a look at the best practices survey and provide comments to Ms. Linder clinder@midhudson.org.  Once editing is complete, the survey will be posted on NYLINE.

Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) Grant-Linda Todd

Ms. Todd's presentation included a brief overview and update on the four broadband-related initiatives the State Library is currently involved in:

NECAT Report-Sarah Conrad Weisman

Ms. Weisman discussed NECAT's proposal for the timetable for 2011-12 database decision making and evaluation, as the NYSL has significant procurement procedures to navigate. The NECAT role is advisory to the NYSL-not involved in direct negotiations, nor privy to pricing. NECAT tries to get feedback from constituent groups. There was a consensus of the Steering Committee for a restructuring of NECAT to the Steering Committee as a whole.

Review of NOVELNY Steering Committee-Sarah Conrad Weisman, et al.

The full Steering Committee heard brief comments from Deputy Commissioner Jeffrey Cannell and then held a discussion of what had been accomplished in the full NOVEL plan and where the group might focus its efforts.

*****Action Items*****

Please contact Mr. Fiske by October 22, 2010 to indicate your interest in updating the NOVEL-Ready Library Levels chart.
Please take a look at the best practices survey and provide comments to Ms. Linder clinder@midhudson.org. Once editing is complete, the survey will be posted on NYLINE.

The meeting adjourned at 2:30 PM.
