Kudos go to ... 

  • Support team for their work on the BYU digital links.  This project is completed.

Updates and follow up

  • Citations are being improved for collections, per Dorothy Horan

Business/Announcements

  • Part of the new home page is up and running.  The top of the page requires some help from engineering and we hope to have that done soon.

New Agenda Items

  • Digital Collections badge - it would be good to have one on the county pages that is county specific and would also have a link to the state collections.  For experts on a particular county, they could have a 3-tiered approach that would be even more helpful to the researcher.
  • It was agreed that we would not meet on Dec. 20 and Dec. 27, but we will meet on January 3rd.
