AFRICAN AREA STUDIES COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT CONSORTIUM

 

MINUTES

 

December 6, 2000

Draft notes:
San Diego, Riverside, & Davis should be included. talk to Cindy CDOs include SC Ted Sibia at Davis

The group suggests UCSC be added to the list. Ruby spoke to Cindy about a liaison: CDC chose our liaison, Cindy Shelton. We did not get a chance to give feedback to the liaison position, however, those who have worked with Cindy and/or have had contact with her, felt she would be very good, strong in terms of accessibility, support, help, & experience.

Sylvia will talk with Cecily Johns tomorrow about the Africana agreement and get signature, etc.

Convenor responsibilities and terms (augmented during discussion from responsibilities outlined contract);

Term--two years

roster Pauline volunteered to get a draft roster to everyone.

list of suggested projects prioritzing those

LC Nairobi--what we're getting from those: easily available, cost effective
looking at su areas (e.g., dance, art, agi, and others)

Convenor: Sylvia Phyllis, Ruby, Karen were suggested as convenors/co-covenors with experience and excellent collections, all had very good reasons not to accept at present. Co-convenor was tried in varying forms, with Karen or Ruby, but group felt a single convenor would be better. projects: to consider at our next meeting [didn't phyllis suggest something??? I didn't write it down] next meeting will be during the week of January 23rd, 2001.


Adjourned at 2:30. Sylvia

Email update December 15: UPDATE on conversations with Cecily Johns, CDC Chair, and Cindy Shelton, CDC Africana Liaison Before signing the agreement, Cecily would like to get a go-ahead on the agreement from the entire CDC. She would like to make sure the entire membership is comfortable with the format, not just the signees. In the meantime she asked me to consult with Cindy Shelton regarding the best way to go about getting other UCs involved in the consortium. Cindy suggested individuals I should speak with at each campus (Davis, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Cruz), and so I will.
