Present: Mike Roy, Terry Simpkins, Carol Peddie, Chris Norris, Danna Gianforte, Doreen Bernier and Ian Burke
We discussed a draft proposal for the formation of a Digital Data Preservation Task Force. Terry submitted the proposal to the ADs. This task force would be charged with 1) identifying current and anticipated needs within LIS for long-term retention, preservation, access and archiving of born-digital objects (text, media, documents created in word-processing and digital publishing software, etc.) and 2) developing strategies and policies for grant-funded research data management. ADs will review and revise the plan.
Current staffing needs within LIS were discussed. The ADs will dedicate the 9/16 retreat to looking holistically at staffing needs across the organization.
Various previously approved network policies, including Backup & Restore and Change Management policies, will be announced to the community. The Incident Response, Network Security and Network Infrastructure Monitoring policies will be presented to the administration for approval.
Thanks for reading,
Terry & Doreen
