An update on development was provided. BC Libraries Cooperative is waiting for the official go ahead to release the statement of work for. Once this has happened Christine Burns will post the proposed development.
BC Libraries Cooperative is currently in the process of setting up a test server so that their libraries can test the booking branches that are waiting for testing.
Evergreen 3.3 will have a brand new angular interface for administration. It looks similar to the new acquisitions admin interfaces. Jane Sandberg demoed the booking admin interfaces. They are all very similar, with lots of consistency. A thank you to Bill Erickson who did most of the work on the interfaces.
Jane reported that Treasure Valley Community College has just submitted a grant to develop a new reserves module for Evergreen. This will be different form other reserves modules. They are looking at a more general module so that it includes textbooks, online textbooks, open education, syllabi, etc. They are now waiting to hear back about the grant. We may want to discuss ERMs in future meetings in relation to this potential development.
Question from about whether anyone is using Evergreen for managing e-resources. Discussion that costs of e-resources can be tracked by using direct charges on invoices in acquisitions.
Discussion about patron requests in acquisitions. Discussion that it is not widely used yet as there are some bugs and it doesn't currently have a way for patrons to directly make requests (ie. via the OPAC). https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1564624
Time has been blocked off for a Student Success Group meeting. Discussion about potentially having a remote option for joining for those not attending the conference this year.
