Executive Committee – Randy said nothing to report.
Instructional initiatives – No one from committee present, report to be submitted and distributed to KCALDD electronically.
Special Projects committee – Steven G said the committee had not met.
Collections committee – Angie Rathmel, chair, sent in report. Report read by Randy. Mary mentioned that the Ebsco representative had expressed some concern about consortia purchases in light of PALS no longer being a section of KLA. Concern seems to have lessened after the APA contract went through.
Digital Scholarship – inactive, Gloria Creed-Dikego is a member of the committee and said she had no idea as to their charge.
Old Business: None
Discussion was held about the fact that the executive committee needs to revisit the charge for each standing committee. If the existing charge is still valid or if a new charge is developed, then committee leadership and membership will be informed.
Micaela mentioned that a state legislator from the Wichita area “was concerned” about something that has been approved and has been happening for some time. The State Legislator wants Butler County property taxes to drop, and complains that 80% of Butler students are not from Butler County. The idea is to lower taxes by cutting Butler’s mill levy (already the smallest in the county). The state legislature will not likely revisit the idea of a cross-county lines reimbursement for students we educate in our service area or beyond. The legislator wants the board of trustees to lower the college budget proportionally.
It was noted that Johnson County Community College and KU seeking approval to modify the KBOR Policy Manual for bachelor degrees, reducing the requirement for credit hours earned at the four-year, baccalaureate, degree granting institution from 60 hours to 40 hours of upper division or major hours. Currently discussions on this policy change are being held at the campus level.
“Proposal to Enhance Student Transfer Pathways and Collaborations Between Johnson County Community College (JCCC) and the University of Kansas (KU). JCCC and KU jointly seek to change KBOR Policy Manual Chapter 111.A.9 Degrees B. 2a-d. Problem: Serving transfer learners is an essential practice for four-year institutions and warrants a fresh review of policy definitions. Currently KBOR Policy Manual Chapter III.A.9 statement (b) indicates bachelor degrees must include 60 credit hours from institutions with a majority of degree offerings that are at the baccalaureate level.”
Meeting was adjourned at this point so attendees could attend other events.

Mary Hester called the meeting to order. There was no business so Mary opened the meeting to reports from committees and discussion on the previous session about resource sharing led by Ray Walling.
Mary reminded the group that we need committee participation. Nominations are encouraged from members and directors (no longer restricted to directors). We have had some success in that. Addison Luchi from Mid-America Nazarene has volunteered to serve on the Instructional Initiatives committee. Marjorie Snyder has also agreed to serve on that committee. There was more discussion about information literacy resources later in the meeting.
Ray Walling summarized the previous session that detailed the business of the Resource Sharing committee. Commitments from a number of new committee members and a chair for the committee are needed by December 31st in order to act on a new initiative proposed by KCALDD. The committee plans to send out a Google doc poll in order to add to information they currently have from PALS and KLDC.
Mary asked Randy about Literati. No report was given at that time.
Marjorie reported that Southwestern College is using open information literacy resources from NLA, New Literacies Alliance, a group that includes KU Medical School, KState, and others. The multimedia lessons can connect to courseware gradebooks. (SC uses Blackboard). Someone with more information also spoke about the NLA lessons working with Canvas. The link to the available lessons is http://newliteraciesalliance.org/available-lessons/
The next official meeting of KCALDD will be during the CULS Conference at Prairie Band Casino in Mayetta, KS.

The regular meeting of the KCALDD was called to order at 3:00 on April 28, 2017 at the CULS Conference, Lawrence, Ks by President Mary Hester.
The minutes of the October meeting were approved as corrected.
Nominations were opened for position of Vice Chair. Randy Roberts was nominated to serve as Vice Chair. Lacking a quorum, ballots will be emailed to the membership at large.
The CRSC has submitted the annual renewal confirmation for institutions participating in the MLA International Bibliography consortium purchase. With 10 institutions participating in FY18, each institution will be receiving a 15% discount off the subscription rate, saving a total of $6,250.
The CRSC, with approval of the council, was tasked with investigating opportunities for consortium discounts for streaming video products. On January 10th, offers were extended to council members for Ambrose Digital, Docuseek 2, and Films on Demand. A follow-up email was sent on February 1 with an additional offer from Alexander Street Press. All four vendors offered webinars for KCALDD member institutions, which were poorly attended. To date, only one trial has been setup for Ambrose and only two institutions have reached out to Docuseek2. The deadline for responding to Ray regarding the Ambrose Digital and Alexander Street Press offers is May 12th. The committee also investigated opportunities for discounts with Kanopy and Swank Digital Campus, but no offers were extended for these vendors.
There has been some discussion about the committee taking on responsibilities for the PALS and RLDC renewals; however, significant concerns have been raised. Ray will be talking with Lea Currie and Mira Greene in mid-May about this possibility.

Thank you to all who participated in our membership meeting at KLA and all the great ideas that were presented for projects. Among other things, we talked about creating a scope and sequence for Information Literacy so we had a guideline to wh at others are teaching at what level) and a guide to quality open access resources.
Now we need some help. If you would be willing to donate your time, or that of an employee, to the cause by serving on a committee please let a member of the executive committee know.
