*** = permanent agenda items
1. Roll Call ***
2. Announcements – Min Tong announced that Rebecca (Missy) Murphey would be the
representative for UCF beginning today. Colleen asked for a volunteer to be the note taker.
This is Barbara Tuck’s last meeting to take notes.
3. Approval of minutes from the last meeting *** Approved.
4. Approval of agenda with additions *** No additions.
5. FCLA Update
a. LibGuides in DLU01 (Aleph database) – Problem fixed.
Colleen said to send a report if we see them again.
Jean Phillips talked about the Florida Virtual Campus. Nothing is final yet and until
the Legislature votes on the final bill, we will not know all the ways FCLA and the
libraries will be impacted. FCLA and CCLA are working together. The new interim
director is Jane Hayes. July 1 is the date to begin operation. There are user
meetings scheduled that we can attend. Jean also pointed out the FCLA Quarterly
Report on the website. It is filled with valuable information for SUS libraries.
Members can see who the new Mango Team Members are on the FCLA Mango
page. http://fclaweb.fcla.edu/mango. Jean reiterated that there will not be much
done to Mango until the shared bib project it finalized. It has top priority.
Jennifer Kuntz said she and Wendy were learning a lot about Mango. She mentioned
the recent Mango outage and how they were able to figure out the problem.
Jennifer sent an email after the meeting summarizing FCLA’s report. That
information is reproduced here.
b. Facet Multiselect is currently in the Mango test catalog
http://testcat.fcla.edu/mulisel. Those changes will be moved into the Production
UBORROW (union) catalog shortly. The option to add that feature to your LOCAL
catalog in Production will be added to the Admin module so you can choose to turn
it on, or leave it off - or request us to do so for you. We'll send out an email to let
you know when this is in Production.
c. Discussion of how to handle e-resource display is tabled until after shared bib, since
we'll soon be in that new environment. Future development along those lines will
be visible in the shared bib Mango, which you can visit at
d. Re table of contents in the 505 $t field: Currently these are indexed in both the Title
and Keyword Anywhere indexes. If I understand correctly, the discussion centered
around whether to continue indexing both places, or just in the Keyword index.
There would need to be agreement between Subcommittee members before any
changes are made.
a. OPAC – Development Priority List – Votes are in
The top three are call number browse (virtual bookshelf), availability facet and links
to research guides.
b. Notes to Mango e-Resources and CRL records –
The following issues are tabled until after the shared bib is finalized. Jennifer’s
report in c. above clarifies this.
FIU: Access limited to FIU students & employees.
Suggestions from UF:
UF: Off-campus access limited to current UF students & employees
CRL record issues
“Online – Licensed for access at FSU, USF, and UF” (i.e. listing all the SUL that are
entitled to access). NOTE: I can see that the CRL records have been added to the
local UF, FSU, USF, UCF, and FIU Mango Catalogs, but not to those at FAMU, FAU,
UWF, UNF, FGCU, and New College); I don’t know for sure that this means that UF,
FSU, USF, UCF, and FIU are all members of CRL and entitled to access. Have sny of
the SULs been able to decide independently whether to include the CRL records in
their local catalogs.
c. Problem of 505 $t (titles within tables of contents) included in the Title index.
This is tabled also. See Jennifer’s clarification in d. above.
d. Other issues: Facet Multiselect feature going into production?
See Jennifer’s note in b. above.
7. TSPC Update – Annie – The Committee is working on the shared bib project.
8. PSPC Update – Minutes of PSPC meetings can be found here.
