1035 slide
1035 slide GoPIG training – at depositry / public docs interest group meetings. Annual multi-day training sessions, training also incorporated into monthly meetings

1050 slide two issues with electronic government information – with electronic access, libraries no longer need to refer patrons to depository libraries
1051 slide BUT – referrals continue, not so much to the collection of depository libraries, but the expertise of depository librarians.
1052 slide depository librarian as trainer
1052 slide central repository of training material
1053 slide central repository of training material – GPO offered to host, but they weren’t ready to provide. WebJunction was selected as host. Although we would pay, users would not.

KX, ALA: public libraries don’t all have high-speed access
KC: not many images, files are pretty simple, hopefully fast download
1138 GS how scalable?
TB we want to take it to a large scale, but haven’t had that conversation yet
GS if you decide you want to change platforms, can you get the stuff out of WebJunction?
KC not easily. WebJunction is really trying to make this work. NM state library would house if WJ falls through. The content won’t disappear. WJ is pushing for a long-term commitment.
RA we focused on WJ because of their development thrust – it is growing into a valuable resource. The upfront investment in getting things into WJ will pay off for us and for them to continue system development
TB …
1142 Barbie Selby, LofVA – module coordinators have access… who has to pay?
KC $ comes from grant for the first 2 years. FYI, material additions come from me and Jenny because of the WJ technical setup
1144 BARBIE S – can GPO use OPAL with WJ for remote training?
KC WJ has live meeting capability
Teddy P – I would propose looking at WJ archiving – and GPO could make these sessions available
RA on Barbie’s first question – we subscribe to WJ on behalf of all the state’s libraries. We have tab editors for the six tabs of WJ NM. Their content management is not as complicated as the CM in this project.

1147 DD, ALA – this is a fed grant – are the modules available to non-WJ partner states?
KC this is available openly. We could restrict access, and chose not to.
DD, ALA – fed money -> available to all. At the end of the grant period, will WJ provide free and open access in perpetuity?
KC there is that piece…
DD I’ve been on panels that rejected grants because of this
KC we have a partner willing to make stuff available
RA the ongoing fee will be to update and to add. NM has agreed to do this. Hopefully other partners will share.

1150 BS
state library discussion tonight at 5 in Aspen room
signup for tour of 10th circuit court of appeals library. No electronic devices. Have ID
schedule change – open forum – council wants part of second half to present recommendations to GPO. We will need 30-45 minutes for this.

1152 adjourn
