Title: LACUNY Liaison report
Post by: Kadri on March 09, 2011, 03:54:37 PM
I was not able to attend the LACUNY Council meeting on February 18, 2011.  The following topics posted in the minutes look relevant to us:

-  A letter to not cut funding for libraries was to be sent to the legislature
-  At the Winter Membership Meeting, a new group was started in the CUNY Academic Commons on eBooks in libraries
-  CUNY Copyright Committee will be holding an event April 8, 2011, at BMCC, open to the public
-  A proposal to create a Scholarly Communication Roundtable (SCRT) was voted on and approved by the executive council.

I will let you know if I hear more about these topics at the next LACUNY Council meeting on Friday, March 18, 2011.
