2) Now - Engage in discussions with GALE to review pricing options (started conversation/ met with Beth Hyer)
3) Meet with ESLN
4) Meet with NY State Library to talk about possible outcomes
5) Mid-July meet with OLIS advisory board to review gathered information and formulate plan, which may include task group.
