3. Discussion of OM libraries and social media: does your library have a facebook account?
4. Role of libraries in researching/maintaining information on herbal compounds, vendor reliability, etc. Response to a queries from the Herbal Committee at the Safety Harbor meeting.
5. Progress report on library committee presence in CCAOM.NET.
Two documents are available from the CCAOM.NET page. I am working on other aspects of the site.
6. Consideration of past unresolved issues, e.g. formation of a consortium. On this issue I feel that if we are to proceed, we need a fully involved committee to work on this. We need a strong lead person to move forward on this. The chair person will act as coordinator. WE should establish a full set of documentation on what responsibilities the lead person should take on.
7. Question: does your institution support online test prep software? What is the library's role in preparing students for these tests?
Supporting documents will be provided as needed. Please comment and make suggestions. Thank you.
