IV.    Continuing Business

Lynn Lampert requested that everyone who turned in receipts for Immersion send her a copy for SCIL records.  All have been reimbursed this is just for our own records.  

B.     LOEX 2007

Deb Moore has emailed LOEX to get additional information on our responsibilities and needed facilities.  She has also emailed San Diego people to see who would be interested in exploring potential sites for the conference.


C.     Elections

Gale Burrow announced that there were two candidates for each SCIL position, and handed around the slate.  Angelynn King withdrew her name from the Secretary position.  The board approved the slate as amended. Candidates will be asked to submit a brief bio and statement of concern by November 1. 


D.    SCIL Works

Melanie Remy announced that the committee has received nine proposals, and is currently voting on which proposals to accept.  Some may be good as panels or posters so that committee may offer presenters those options.  Sessions will be 50 minutes.  Melanie will talk to Tracey Mayfield about the logistics of doing four breakout sessions and doing poster sessions before and/or after the breakout sessions.  Registration deadline will be January 7th, so all registrations must be postmarked by that date.  Registration receipts will be posted to the website.  Cost will be approximately 7.50 for students, 15.00 for CARL, and $20.00 for non-members.  Tracey Mayfield will coordinate food and parking.  The agenda will be posted to the website as soon as it is ready.  Debbi Renfrow will advertise the event on the typical listservs.  We will advertise the ACRL Pre-Con at SCIL Works.  Remind presenters to bring extra handouts and cards for people unable to attend their sessions

       9:00-9:30 Registration, Welcome and Poster Sessions

There was talk of doing a SCIL works proceedings in print or electronic form.  The board thought starting with an electronic version first might be easier.  Participants will be asked to sign a presentation and electronic proceedings release.  Amy Wallace will create the release, and will work with Duffy Tweedy on creating a space for an electronic proceeding on the SCIL Website.  One model might be:


Teaching Information Literacy Concepts: Activities and Frameworks from the Field.  Pittsburgh: Library Instruction Publications (2001.)  Jacobson, Trudi, and Timothy Gatti, eds.

Other ideas to keep in mind:


VI.     Round Robin


CSU Channel hosted an information literacy summit for Ventura County, which brought together teams from local high schools, community colleges, and CSU Channel Islands.  The goals were to examine the state of information literacy in Ventura County, identify information literacy gaps within and across institutions in Ventura County, identify potential information literacy collaborations within and across institutions in Ventura County, and identify needed educational opportunities in the area of information literacy for institutions in Ventura County.  The goals were accomplished and the enthusiasm for the event far exceeded our expectations.


VII.   Adjournment

The next meeting will be Friday December 10 at CSU Long Beach.
