Meeting Minutes: October 19, 2017

InfoEyes Advisory Committee Meeting Minutes
via Online Meeting Room Provided by Accessible World


Catherine Durivage, Herrick Heitman, Linda Rossman

Statistics Report:

Catherine reported on the most recent statistics for the current year and for the past couple of months. This year since January, we have received 38 questions. So far the past couple of months have been quieter with just 3 questions in September. The highest number per month during this current year is 10 questions for the month of June.

Membership and Invoices:

Linda reported on the upcoming invoices to be sent out hopefully by this coming December. These invoices will reflect the charges for the fiscal year from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. Because of the low hosting costs associated with Small Orange, our web hosting service, we are able to continue our low annual dues of $25 per library.

Other Business

Catherine said she was sorry that Dan could not attend the meeting today but that Small Orange is working well for us and doesn't need much tweaking. Dan enjoys working on the website, and he will be keeping the holiday schedule up-to-date. We appreciate Dan's acting as our "webmaster!"

Linda mentioned that she will be working with 4 or 5 Perkins students that are college bound next week and will mention the InfoEyes service to them. Herrick reported that a new young adult/children's librarian will be starting at the Washington Library and that hopefully their new librarian can do some outreach about our services.

Next InfoEyes Meeting

The next InfoEyes meeting is planned for March 15, 2018.

Respectfully submitted,
