Minutes
June 28, 2008



Present: Brad Schaffner (Harvard -- filling in for chair Cathy Zeljak), Diana Brooking (Washington), Jackie Byrd (Indiana), Jon Giullian (Kansas), Carl Horne (Indiana), Barbara Krupa (Stanford), Sandra Levy (Chicago), Tatiana Lorkovic (Yale), Terri Miller (Michigan State), Svetlana Pavlova (HCL), Liladhar Pendse (UCLA), Emily Ray (Vassar), Andy Spencer (Wisconsin), Larisa Walsh (Chicago)

Incoming Chair: Brad Schaffner will be the new chair of the committee.

SEES Website: The issue of switching to the ACRL website was raised, especially with the possibility of a more limited role by Cathy Zeljak, due to new non-Slavic assignments for her. ACRL is offering training session on using their website. This issue will be further discussed via email.

Questionnaire on SEES Collections Budgets: SEES members were encouraged to get any new responses to Brad by mid-July. Brad went over the 20 responses received thus far. Although there was a lot of diversity in the responses, a number of trends could be identified from the data. Brad and Cathy Zeljak will analyze the data in an upcoming publication.

Discussion about Impact of RPS's Demise: Members had a general discussion about which vendors libraries were using for materials formerly coming from RPS.
