November 3, 2017 Council Meeting @ Albany / Re: Campus Updates - Delhi
« on: November 02, 2017, 02:10:55 PM »
Delhi welcomed Katelyn Baroody to our staff in August as our new Assessment and Instruction Librarian.

For Halloween, the library staff chose to all dress to a theme, and we had a great day. (Pic available by request)

We have been working closely with our Provost and students to take a hard look at space utilization within the building, and to format a plan to add more quiet and small group study spaces to what is primarily an open floor plan.

I have to say that not a whole lot has changed since our prior meeting.

The next SLC meeting is in December, so I should have a report for our January meeting. There is still a lot of transition happening, but I hope to bring more information to January's meeting on this as well as information on the new LSP migration.

I encourage anyone who is interested in helping to plan this year's conference to reach out to our 2nd VP, April (Steenburgh) Broughton to join the committee. A successful conference takes a lot of work from many people.

Hello SUNYLA, welcome back to another great year!

The schedule of Council meetings is as follows for this year (running 10am-3pm):
   September 18 at Delhi
   November 3 at Albany
   January 26 at FIT
   March 23 at Finger Lakes Community College
   June TBD (week of June 11) at the Annual Conference

At the annual conference in June, there was a chance for the members of SUNYLA to meet with the current Board of the SLC. At this informal meeting some of the discussion was around what SLC could do for SUNYLA, and how SUNYLA could be active within SLC. We were asked to provide SLC with some ideas on how our organization would consider the SLC to be successful.

SUNYLA as an organization was asked to provide a representative to the SLC Executive Director search, a call went out to the members of the Council looking for a volunteer, as this is a search that will involve a lot of time. We should have this finalized by the meeting (hopefully).

Elections are over - we have some new officers joining us next year on the Executive Board.
April Steenburgh will be our new 2nd VP/Conference Chair and Carol Anne Germain is our new 1st VP/President Elect.  We also passed some changes to our bylaws.

The 2018 Annual Conference will be held at Finger Lakes Community College, the week of June 11, 2018.

On a fun note, SUNY represented at the ACRL Trivia night. We played well, and even came away with a consolation prize - the Golden Duck. You may find him traveling around through the delivery bags next year, he is quite keen on visiting all the SUNY schools.

If you are interested in running for office, please let Carrie know ASAP so that ballots can be ready for the April election. We are going to be voting on the following positions:
    * 1st VP/Pres Elect: 3 year term
    * Treasurer: 2 year term
    * 2nd VP/Conference Chair: 1 year term, typically (but not always) at the campus where annual conference will be held

ACRL- there is a forum discussion (under General Topics) about meeting up at ACRL for those from SUNY who are going. We will try to plan a time where any who can make it can just all meet and hang out for a bit. We have many SUNYLA members attending, and several are presenting. Let's show our SUNY pride!
