    • Survey ResultsWe looked at the survey results but without Susan Renison present we did not go into a deep discussion.  Some changes will need to be made.  PGR does not charge patrons for non pick-up of ILL items.It was noted that Salinas Public Library has ILL staffing time from 0-10 hrs/wk.  It was noted that many requests sent to Salinas aged to the next lender as they didn’t get to them.  Clarification about what days they process ILL requests might be helpful.There are some missing responses.  Changes needed should be sent directly to Susan Renison.Workshops for the current fiscal year were discussed.  We all agreed to do some searching to locate Hot New Topics in ILL and to email suggestions back and forth.  We would like everyone to participate in this.  Ideas that came up were: author of the 2009 edition of the  ILL Handbook ; Best Services at Lowest Cost (locate a speaker?); Check ALA Midwinter and summer conferences to see what ILL topics are being discussed at their meetings.  Email all ideas to Monica Wilmont (MIIS) and she will compile them and share them with the committee via email.  We feel we need to have something planned soon to make it happen this year.  It was also noted that if we find a good topic that we may get some other PLP libraries to attend.  We will vote on meeting suggestions in December at the December ILL meeting.
