1. Report RFP from Georgia Pines: the official bid award notification has been posted, but otherwise there was nothing new to share at this time.
SITKA has submitted great training videos.
The Reports Wish List
wiki space is a place we can use to brainstorm ideas for reports-related development, either functional or documentation-related.
The Documentation Wiki: http://open-ils.org/dokuwiki/doku.php
can be used to link to institution-specific materials that are too customized to add to the official DIG documentation, but might still be helpful to other Evergreen Libraries. Cristina will link her instructions for reports (http://ocrl.org/chtrotter/reports/
) to this space. Jason clarified that items that are converted to the Wiki are supposed to be licensed under CC-BY-SA, but linking is less regulated.
It was suggested that EINetwork might have information/documentation about adding sources to reports. Jenny will ask if they have anything to contribute either to the DIG documentation or to the wiki space.
The Activities and Goals
drafted by Amy Terlaga were approved, provided we make specific mention that the group works at "fostering training opportunities." The addition has been made.
Ben has updated his notes
on the wiki about automated SQL report scripting.
IV. New Business
