122RE: [ccaomlcaom] april meeting in san francisco
- Mar 28, 2008
Dear LCAOM Members:
This will follow-up from a previous e-mail I recently sent to the committee in response to Dan’s query below about the possibility of having a conference call phone device in the LCAOM committee room in San Francisco. After checking with the hotel, the charges for renting a conference phone device for the committee meeting, and particularly the long distance line charges that would have to be paid by the Council (billed by the hotel) for the length of the meeting, would be beyond what the Council has budgeted for this meeting. The hotel advises that it would be necessary for the committee and each outside caller to dial-in to a conference call vendor with an assigned number and password. The CCAOM Executive Committee does this periodically when it meets by conference call and the charges for only an hour or so can be substantial. LCAOM is scheduled to meet for 3 ½ hours.
I am sorry that we cannot do this as I realize that many schools do not send their librarians to these meetings. At the same time, the CCAOM Yahoo Group for LCAOM members is the most active of all the CCAOM Yahoo groups and perhaps through that forum committee members can move forward on the committee’s agenda.

Hi Jim and members of CCAOMLCAOM,
Here at NY Chiropractic College our AOM program has just been accredited. We started the program in 2004.
We want to participate in CCAOMLCAOM as much as possible, but we will be unable to attend the SF meeting, although traveling to SF for the meeting is very tempting.
If there is any way to arrange a conference call with members who are unable to attend, we would be happy to pay for our telecom charges. Do you think the hotel would have a conference calling "telephone"? If they did and I called the assigned conference call number then I think we'd be charged for the call (?) Just a thought...
Anyway I will work on getting you the requested information. Thanks for your hard work on behalf of our AOM library mission. Dan

Here is a suggested agenda:
1. Impact of doctoral program decisions on library resources.
2. Current awareness journal/resource materials: Can it all be done
3. Continued efforts at cooperation and mutual assistance.
4. Internet vs "Union" connections: Libraries sharing the same
software, e.g. Libraryworld, can share catalog records.

To this end, I would like each member of the group to let me know
some basic information about the library:

Software used to catalog and manage the collection

Professional librarian: on site?
number of students served
Hope to see many of you in San Francisco in April.
