Hello. I know from other meetings that I can hear others but you cannot hear me. So I will use the chat if I have anything to add or if I have a question. Thanks!
Ill Put the Agenda up for the beginning of the meeting
Hello everyone! I may not have a high quality microphone, so will use chat. Thanks!
Tracy Byerly, ASGCLA Board Member until June 30th
Rhonda Gould, Director-at-Large
Vicky Crone, ASGCLA Board Federal director
Hello all, Mike Marlin, Special Populations Director on the Board
Hi, Sharon Rawlins, convener for State Libraries' Youth Services Consultants' Interest Group.
With the increased traffic Zoom has been randomly kicking folks out of meetings unexpectedly, at least that is happening in lots of meetings I have attended!
Nothing for a deaf person here it seems...
Hi Alec, apologies for no captioning. I will inquire further for you afterwards.
Can the documents beings used as scren shots be distrubuted through ASGCLA lists??
Simon, I believe they are up on connect. If not, we will share out asap.
Simon, I just sent it to you
I looked on connect and the ascgla pages yesterday but couldn't find this table.
Erin Boyington CO State Library
How would going to ODLOS impact our ability to get conference presentations accepted and meeting rooms?
Please mute your lines
I just sent the doc to the ASGCCLA listserv
Thank you Mike.

Thank you, Dan!
We have a meeting I can't participate in, what am I supposed to say?
I do appreciate all the work that has gone into this as well. It's an unfortunate situation.
Is there a disadvantage to having Phys Del in RUSA and other consortial IGs in CORE?
Greg, i was thinking about that also!
i don't think that it makes sense for delivery to be in RUSA
A general question: do you have a sense of how many other interest groups are doing this kind of merger at the same time? I'm curious mostly because we have such a mixture of interests, and I'd hate for a merger to happen only for the merged group to disappear as well
Access to digital resources is going to be an even bigger issue now in the midst of the pandemic.
I concur with Marti's concerns.
Susan Palmer IHLS
@ Greg and Dee, unless it is the resource sharing piece? Good questions though.
There has been some very loose talk about whether underserved populations might consider forming or resurrecting a round table.
I had thoutght thst EUSA had decided to join CORES
I am a member of CORE, currently work in a System/Consortia, and am part of Physical Delivery Group. I am not currently a member of RUSA.
Consortia Management IG may go to CORE, still exploring. There hasn't been much chatter yet
Ebooks was an ALA Working Group / Task Force before it was folded into ASGCLA and maybe it should go back to big ALA
CORE Sections https://core.ala.org/sections/
Well that's confusing and very very ALA ...
Marti, just in some brainstorming conversations I've had. Contact me offline if you're interested, though I'm not sure it's the best strategy. I have other ideas.
Completely agree with Marti and EDI ahould be enlarged to take accessibility issues and groups with the passing of ASGCLA
Our group, LSID, wonders about meeting room space at ALA conferences as well as workshop consideration that ASGCLA aided with a move to ODLOS, or the like
EDI was envisioned to encompass disability, Loida’s presidential invasive brought that home I think. ASGCLA has always played the role of reminding people of that “Disability” is the “D” in EDI. We, as individuals, we need to do this in
Does ASGCLA know why the division was losing memebers ??
Comment - I will not pay dues to join ACRL - which has nothing to do with my work~ that means I will be out of Universal Access work.
Would Universal Access fit somewhere else?
Is there any chance of a one year gift membership to the places where the interest group members are going? It's not the member's choice to have ASGCLA go away. Maybe pay one amount and get all three for one year.
Is there a way to have an interest group than spans divisions-perhaps involving members from ACRL, PLA, etc.? I realize this might be impossible with the way things are set up and funded.
My question got buried, but I'll ask it again: A general question: do you have a sense of how many other interest groups are doing this kind of merger at the same time? I'm curious mostly because we have such a mixture of interests, and I'd hate for a merger to happen only for the merged group to disappear as well
Groups like REFORA and the Black Caucus are affiliate groups that are supported by ODLOS. Maybe a Disability Community Services affiliate organization?
The Board is having to make immediate decisions on a short timeline. The Exec Dir position is going away at end of summer and not being refilled by ALA. Please keep giving us your input.
I have to jump off the call! I will support continuing the work of the Accessibility Assembly to wherever it will have the most impact. Thanks, Reed (Chair, Accessibility Assembly)
Hi Marti, yes a caucus or affiliate association is what I was thinking. let's talk soon.
Let's do, Mike!
thank you everyone. I’m part of the Accessibility Assembly and Consumer Health Interest Group but I have to go.
Hear, hear! Nice work Jeanette!
Hear hear, Jeannette!
Thank you Jeannette
Yes, I'm sure it hasn't been easy. Thank you so much Jeannette.
Thank you Jeannette, Sherry, and Carrie for your calm and grace under very difficult circumstances
