President’s Report January 2019

As noted in the Membership Committee report, I am working with Bill Jones on delegate outreach initiatives. In our discussions, several ideas surfaced - 5-10% off annual conference; a special delegates meeting at the conference - similar to the new conference attendees; and a delegates-only raffle. 

Ophelia Morey from the University of Buffalo is on the SUNY Academic Programs & Awards committee for the 2018/2019 academic year. She has agreed to serve as our SUNYLA liaison. Once her term expires, we will need representation. 

I attended the fall SLC meeting in Saratoga. There was lots of discussion on the Alma migration and associated issues - workflow, support, etc. While there were vendor sessions, many of the directors were most concerned with Elsevier - some meetings with this vendor were scheduled for December.  SLC Bylaws are being developed.

Susan Lieberthal contacted me about the vacant SLC Board position: Nominations are being accepted to become a member of the SUNY Library Consortium Board for the remainders of a three year term which began spring 2018.  The term will run through to the spring meeting, 2021.  Please submit nominations and self-nominations by Thursday January 31, 2019.   Any questions, please contact Susan Lieberthal, SLC Secretary, at I strongly encourage SUNYLA members to nominate themselves or a colleague.

Library Advocacy Day is Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Does SUNYLA want a presence?

Next meeting: Onondaga Community College – March 22?, 2019
