Members of the committee introduced themselves and spoke a little about where they are from and what they do.

Manda introduced the committee’s mission and our two main annual tasks:

  1. forming the Bryant Fellowship committee and facilitating it and
  2. developing and running 2-3 programs over the course of the school year to contribute to the professional development of Harvard Librarians.

Bryant Fellowship:
Discussed the schedule for the Bryant Fellowship. Decided we should make a University-wide announcement as soon as possible to give possible applicants time to prepare. Doug Campbell and Ksenya Kiebuzinski volunteered to co-Chair the committee. We discussed the possibility of having the recipient do another presentation in addition to presenting at the Librarians Luncheon for those unable to attend the luncheon. We set the deadline date for applications at February 14, 2003. Alix will email Doug and Ksenya the HUL Notes email address and Manda will email the template(s) used to announce the fellowship in the past; this may be edited. Alix will update the PDC website.

PDC website:
Alix gave out the url of the PDC website and asked members to look at the site and send comments and suggestions to her.

Program Updates:

Next meeting:
November 6, 2002 at 625 Massachusetts Ave (room TBA).
