  1. Admin Council report

– Kristen attended the recent Admin Council meeting where she presented the committee’s annual report. The report was positively received and no additional tasks were identified by the Council. The committee should be able to expect the same level of funding in support of programs during the year. Much of the meeting consisted of hearing reports from all of the committees. It was announced that additional Zoom accounts are being added and will be available soon.

5. New business

– Ideas for possible workshops were discussed, including:

  • Google Analytics and assessment; one of the NPS Library staff has recent expertise and might be a possible presenter
  • Tips for technology troubleshooting, including wireless printing
  • Digital exhibits, perhaps build upon the recent symposium at UC Santa Cruz
  • Use of APIs; a specific training on SQL queries for custom reports will be scheduled during the October Tech Committee meeting using

6. Public comment – no public comment received
