good morning everyone!

Good question!
James Jacobs

just an FYI, the Anita Schiller papers have recently been received in the ALA archive. GODORT wrote a memorial resolution for her last year https://archon.library.illinois.edu/ala/index.php?p=accessions/accession&id=184&q=anita+schiller

Thanks, James!

I've been involved with fed docs since 1986 - but in GODORT in 2000s and now.
James Jacobs
39:24
thanks Angela!
Jenny Groome
39:25
I like term James used - GODORT adjacent

Ephemera can be very important to legal cases to show what was "generally known" - like change in knowledge about lead paint in 1970s or 1980s
Jenny Groome
45:59
And they get lost in stacks so easily
James Jacobs
48:42
a good reminder about the various reasons for doing collection development
Aimee Quinn
53:16
That was great, Angie!
Elizabeth McDonald
54:27
I think it is useful
Jenny Groome
56:18
This is so great! I could have used this when at a Selective and having to justify keeping certain documents
Jenny Groome
57:59
I withdrew a pamphlet on lead paint - because "the Regional has everything" - except lawyers and court clerks knew that library was only one in state that had the lead paint pamphlet
Jenny Groome
58:51
When I came to work at a Regional, I was surprised to learn that we didn't retain all superseded editions
James Jacobs
59:13
same goes for digital ;-)
Elizabeth McDonald
59:20
I know you aren't talking digital, but print is discarded for digital. And digital is a click from gone
James Jacobs
59:37
+1 Elizabeth
Aimee Quinn
59:52
Correct,, Elizabeth. Also, it is important to remember what is best for your community.

Blaine is this year's Hoduski award recipient
Jenny Groome
01:00:39
I try to explain to other libraries that if an state doc (or federal) is on an agency site - it is NOT safe. It is only "available" if the item has been ingested into a repository
Elizabeth McDonald
01:01:00
Agreed Jenny
Aimee Quinn

Aimee Quinn
01:02:02
I apologize, but I have another meeting to attend. Good to see everyone and thanks for attending.
Jenny Groome
01:04:12
I was asked to write a brief article for GPO on a GOVDOC-L discussion about treasures of Serial Set. I couldn't do it
Jenny Groome
01:05:26
This was a few years ago. I started to write an article about how hard it is to promote content and protect it. How to learn about "rare" docs when new. I gave up. But this guide is the answer
Jenny Groome
01:08:53
Another issue - I was asked for one item in a Dept Interior series that was to be put in Special Collections before they spent $200 to buy a 19th century pamphlet on schoolrooms. When rare doc is within a series, it is harder to identify
Jenny Groome
01:09:54
Is this what triggers the "committed to retain" message in WorldCat?
James Jacobs
01:10:52
thanks everyone! ttfn
Jenny Groome
01:12:12
Thanks - this is so great!!!
Elizabeth McDonald
01:12:22
very interesting
Benjamin Aldred
01:12:57
Look forward to hearing more!
Jenny Groome
01:14:01
thanks
