Present: David Gewirtz, Bobbie Pilette, Gretchen Gano, Kevin Glick, E.C. Schroeder, Audrey Novak

Absent: Rebekah Irwin


There was a general exchange of where each of the task forces is in the process. Both groups agreed that progress had slowed.  New strategies to regain momentum were discussed.


A discussion about the DPIP report led into the possibility of duplication of efforts amongst a number of different digital groups.  The idea of bringing together representatives from DPIP, Metadata Ctte & DPC to see where there are overlaps in responsibilities and work and where it may make sense to arrange “handoffs” was suggested by Audrey.  All members agreed to the idea.  Audrey will discuss with Meg.


To Do:

It was agreed that the Best Practices Task Force would share their timeline; highlighting points where they feel a joint meeting would be useful.
