Lindsay Cronk
14:31
Hi, John. Yes. There's a section on the name in the We Hear You site if you are interested: https://core.ala.org/we-hear-you/
Anne Moore
14:49
Jesse, we will cover staff roles shortly.
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
16:03
Should we ask participants to use the Q&A for questions?
Emily Morton-Owens
16:10
Also, the current 3 divisions have slightly different roles currently defined, which I think should allow them to complement each other well.
Emily Morton-Owens
16:33
I think it would be great because they we could use it as a queue.

Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector

Sorry, I thought I had switched to panelists.
Lindsay Cronk
19:23
We have a question in Q&A about the cost of the Exchange. "How was the price arrived at? Why is it so expensive?"

Kathleen McElhinney
22:49
ALCTS is a leader in the cataloging world, providing a voice to the cataloging world that is often overlooked, as well as serving as the primary prof. org. for training new catalogres. With all the emphasis on prof dev, what will happen to these roles?
Kathleen McElhinney
23:40
no
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
23:45
Hi, Kathleen - Can you please post your question using the Q&A box in the Zoom navigation?
Andrew Pace
23:51
click "show all"
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
24:02
You have to open the Q&A box in the Zoom navigation
Andrew Pace
26:45
I don't think there is overhead on dues
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
27:09
You're right, Andrew. There is no impact on the bottom line for ALA
Emily Morton-Owens
28:45
There are some ALCTS/LLAMA specific questions getting upvoted, I see.
Emily Morton-Owens
28:56
That I can’t jump in and answer!
Anne Moore
29:36
I will read them out and we can answer.
Andrew Pace
29:47
A merged division will be almost as big as ACRL and PLA and bigger than AASL !
Cynthia Romanowski
30:20
Is someone speaking? There is no audio.
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
30:45
I hear audio
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
31:04
does anyone else?
Emily Morton-Owens
31:12
Yes, Anne. I can hear her. Any change on your end now?
Lindsay Cronk
31:21
I hear her too.
Jenny Levine, LITA DIrector
31:24
I hear audio
Cynthia Romanowski
31:43
I hear it now.
Emily Morton-Owens
32:42
John says we didn’t answer his question and affirm that all staff will keep their jobs.
Anne Moore
33:10
We will go back to John's question.
Emily Morton-Owens
33:31
I want to say yes obviously but has this been specified as such?
Anne Moore
34:05
Yes, we need all the staff we have now.
Lindsay Cronk
34:09
It has been, but we don't have an FAQ about it. It's in the Organizational Benefits section of the draft plan.
Emily Morton-Owens
34:13
Kerry just put a good answer.
Andrew Pace
34:57
All other divisions are library type or patron type. This merger of "core services in libraries" is welcome and long overdue!
Cynthia Romanowski
35:05
Again, I no longer can hear Anne
Lindsay Cronk
35:46
Sorry, Cynthia. She is just reiterating that all staff will say but the goal is to achieve more efficiencies in terms of saving them time on duplicate effort.
Cynthia Romanowski
36:18
I heard her for a brief moment and it went away.
Lindsay Cronk
36:35
She is now responding to the ALCTS/Cataloging question.
Lindsay Cronk
36:41
Jennifer is continuing the answer.
Cynthia Romanowski
37:04
Thank you everyone! I hear everyone, except, Anne. So strange!

There will also be a more detailed timeline of every step along the way in the proposal. We’ll be adding that to the version you see once we’ve clarified what we can up front.
Tyler Dzuba
53:11
(Follow up to my comment: Just now noticed that it’s already there! Appendix A has the all the details of the timeline as we understand them now.)

Esprit de Core :)
Andrew Pace
01:02:45
Many thanks to the Division leaders and the Core Steering Committee. This is important and difficult work. As a long-time member of all three divisions and a former LITA President, I'm fully supportive of this merger. These three divisions will not only be stronger together. Together they will also have a bigger impact on the association, on the profession, and on libraries, library workers, and patrons!
Tyler Dzuba
01:03:15
Gotta run to a meeting I’m facilitating; thank you, Emily, Jenny, Anne, and Lindsay for sharing your perspectives so well!
Kristin Martin
01:03:24
Suggestion: you should put the link to the draft proposal document under the Reports tab as well as under "About Core."
Lindsay Cronk
01:03:51
Absolutely.
Andrew Pace
01:06:29
thanks!
Kristin Martin
