1 OPEN ACCESS TASK FORCE MEETING: MINUTES FOR JANUARY 10, 2011 1. Minutes: this meeting – Dina 2. Approve Minutes/Revise agenda approved 3. Update on Scholarly Communications Librarian position: re advertised Isabel reported that applications seem a bit slow to date for the Scholarly Communications Librarian vacancy. She also noted that the Legal Information Center now has a policy to hire only librarians with a law degree, which indicates that there should be a sufficient pool of applicants with a JD for the SC librarian position, although the JD is not a required qualification but only preferred. Laurie suggested reaching out to anthropology or other fields involved in cultural heritage that may provide a bigger pool. 4. Discussion: Setting the agenda for 2011 (see brainstorming ideas) Isabel discussed the original group charge, and moving it from draft to permanent status, and asked for any edits or input. This would entail changing the group’s name from ‘task force’ to ‘working group’. Isabel will present the final version to Judy and then notify Stacey to change the name and URL on the LibGuide. Beth suggested a shift from working with the scholarly communications librarian to the scholarly communications office or unit. The group discussed increased focus on international issues and groups, including Title VI centers like the Latin American Center on campus. Also mentioned: the possibility of an outside faculty member or graduate student joining the group to provide additional perspective. See the Strategies draft for more detailed minutes. 5.
