Meeting Notes

September 12, 2000



Present: Nicole Bouché (chair), Suzanne Eggleston, Nancy Lyon, E. C. Schroeder

Absent: Judy Spak, Emily Horning

The OPAC Demo Situation Work Group met on September 12, 2000 and continued its discussion of the Criteria document, specifically the section entitled "Connectivity with other Electronic Resources." In particular, the group reviewed the assignments for numbers 86, 87, 89, 90, 91, 93, and 94.

The group then moved on to the "Help Features/Messages/ Prompts" section of the Criteria document and reviewed the assignments for numbers 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, and 101.

The group has now completed a detailed first pass through the Criteria document. Nicole Bouché will go back and fill in any missing objectives, and will review the entire document for gaps. It will be posted to the project website as soon as updates occasioned by the release yesterday of the final version of the Readers Criteria document are completed.

Group members were assigned functional areas as a means of assessing whether the current demo situation document meets the library’s needs.

Next meeting is scheduled for September 19, 2000 at 1:30 p.m. in SML 410.

Agenda for September 19:

Review demo situation document for what remains to be done

Start discussing functional areas
