    July 26, 2011 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    1. Welcome & Introductions from the Chair Marilyn Estes.
    2. Sharon Bradley volunteered to take minutes.

      • Due to a lack of members there were no committee reports. All SIS members are encouraged to volunteer for these subcommittees. The work is never onerous and the work of all the subcommittees is helpful to the chair in getting things done.

    5. Old Business
      • Web site will be migrating into AALLNet. Double check links, and save any documents.

    7. New Chair’s Remarks
      • “PreservationUpdates” is a Yahoo group (
      • Encouraged to write articles. It’s been years since an article from the committee appeared in AALL Spectrum but she also encouraged everyone to think about writing for the Spectrum Blog. This may be less intimidating as the articles are shorter, and can be more conversational in style.
      • Sally would like someone to take over the preservation column in Technical Services Law Librarian. The next column would not be until Feb. 2012 issue. Topics have included new products, and useful links. The columnist does not always have to write the column, but can invite guests and then coordinate the submission. [Editor’s note: the new preservation columnist has since been selected.]
