NARRATIVE OF ACTIVITIES SINCE LAST REPORT:

• CEC events successfully sponsored and completed: January – April 2007

— March 2007 – North Carolina Serials Conference, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, led by Christie Degener et al. and coordinated by Lei Jin — $750

• Forthcoming CEC events and projects for May – December 2007

— September 2007 – SCCTP Distance Education Train-the-Trainers Program, led by Laura Kimberly of the Amigos Library Services and coordinated by Jayne Sappington ($1000)

The Amigos Library Services submitted a proposal for this program in March 2007 to request for the funding that was made available due to the withdrawal of the previously approved “CONSER Access Level Record for Serials: Training Material Development” program (see “Events Cancelled” below).  The Amigos program proposal was approved by the Board in April 2007.

— Distance Education Development: a Pilot Project, led and coordinated by Betty Landesman ($1000)

In exploring the next steps for our proposed pilot project for developing an online course, we touched base with Virginia Taffurelli, Chair of the ALA ALCTS SS Education Committee and a NASIG CEC member.  The new lead is to contact Christa Easton (Stanford University) and Trisha Davis (Ohio State University), who are developing online courses for e-resources and print serials for ALCTS, for possible collaborative opportunities.
 
• Events cancelled; funds reallocated

— CONSER Access Level Record for Serials: Training Material Development ($1000)

This program will not take place as it was proposed because Les Hawkins of CONSER formally withdrew his request for the grant on March 9, 2007.

• CEC Manual – A subcommittee within CEC has been formed to put a CEC manual together.  The subcommittee will be meeting shortly to work on this project.

• Review of Committee Charge – In response to the request from the VP/Pres-Elect of NASIG, the CEC will discuss the committee charge at the annual meeting in June to see if it needs any adjustment or modification.

• New England Technical Services Librarians (NETSL) — Dodie Gaudet, the VP/President-Elect of NETSL, contacted the CEC in March inquiring possibilities of offering some programs in conjunction with NASIG.  In response, the CEC requested additional information about the kind of projects NETSL had in mind and also provided two possibilities for NETSL to consider: 1) collaboration on a non-conference event such as co-sponsoring or jointly planning a preconference that is serials-related in a broad sense; 2) Some of the sessions that have been presented at NASIG annual conferences could be incorporated to NETSL conference, if interested.
