Meeting Minutes

Wednesday, December 5, 2007
1:30 - 3:00 p.m.
Nebraska Library Commission, Crane Room

  1. Resources for State Employees available on the Nebraska Library Commission web site.

    Julie Pinnell, Information Services Librarian with the Nebraska Library Commission, provided a demonstration of the many resources available to state employees via the NLC web site (http://www.nlc.state.ne.us/nse/). Databases and catalogues of on- and off-line publications featuring sophisticated search options, a "Best of the Web" listing of useful web sites by subject, interlibrary loan request form, and a library contact form featuring a nifty Instant Messaging "widget" for live chat provide state employees with quick access to all kinds of information for themselves and looking up information for the public.

  2. Changing of the Guard.

    Jana Johnson completed a successful year as chairperson for the Webmasters' Group. Jamie Lillis will chair for 2008 starting with our next meeting in February.

  3. Miscellaneous.

    Crystal Childers suggested that we set aside time in each meeting to "talk shop" so the group can discuss day-to-day issues that webmasters face, including coding issues, etc.

    Pat Saldana asked for suggestions regarding Spanish translations of web site content, including meta-data in the header section of a web page.

    Chris Voss suggested contacting the Nebraska Acrobat User Group (http://www.acrobatusers.com/chapters/nebraska/) for suggestions regarding proper tagging of pdfs for accessibility.

  4. Adjourn.
