SUNYLA President’s Report – Sept. 21, 2012

SUNY Council of Library Directors (SCLD)
I have had two phone meetings as part of the SCLD executive board.
July 18, 2012

The billing of Empire Delivery services was discussed. SCLD voted to keep it a core service, so OLIS had to get a contract with Empire. As a result 1st semester bills had to be paid directly to the vendor or through your local 3r. Next quarter bills will be included in our SUNY core service bills.

SCLD voted that they would only pay half of their annual fee to NYSHEI to show their displeasure, thinking they were paying for a full year’s service at half price. NYSHEI informed them they were not allowed to do that, so they would only have a half year’s membership – as of now all SUNY NYSHEI memberships will end on Jan. 31, 2013.

The Fall SCLD meeting will be at FIT, Oct. 14-15.

OLIS recommended two new task forces – Shared Catalog and Discovery System

Sept. 11, 2012

This phone meeting was to set the schedule for the Fall meeting. Topics to be discussed: NYSHEI; two new task forces; Center for Intellectual Property; GSU & e-reserves.


As requested by the council last June, Jason Kramer will be starting off our Sept. meeting.


I will be attending the Sept. 27 Regional Professional Leadership Network meeting at METRO (3R) in Manhattan.


I have appointed Pam O’Sullivan from Brockport to be the new chair of Personnel Policies Committee. I am actively looking for someone to be the new liaison to IDS.

Our next meeting will be held at SUNYIT on November 16, 2012.
