Minutes of Rights & Responsibilities Meeting

March 17, 1998

Present: Marcus (chair), Burg, Milstein, Shirey, Hamilton (ex officio), Britton (minutes)

Lawrence reported on the recent meeting of the Executive Committee of the Librarians' Assembly. Discussed at the meeting was the continued progress of the procedures manual and a review of the ULC/Executive Committee meeting on Feb 19th. There will be a call for nominations for the newly formed Benefits Committee.

The Rights and Responsibilities Committee homepage has moved to a new server. The new URL is: http://hul.harvard.edu/assembly/randr/ The new server allows us access to the files for direct updating. Lawrence also demonstrated the minutes pages with the ivy background. No formal approval by the committee was given.

Lawrence and some students have scanned the entire Handbook for Librarians and placed it on the web for review. He gave a demo of what the pages looked like and some of the problems associated with scanned documents. This version will be used to begin writing the revised web-based handbook.

Members assigned to specific sections of the Handbook will begin editing the current version, scanned by Lawrence. A demonstration of FTP and HTML editing was given to help answer questions people had about how to edit an existing web page. Lawrence and Scott agreed to be contact people for anyone with problems editing their sections.
