No policy committee meeting this month (and some thoughts on internet policies)

My first commitee meeting was supposed to be yesterday. But, because of the demands on staff during the switch over to a new catalog system, the meeting was cancelled.

I expected there would be some discussion of the recent state supreme court decision that might inform our various internet policies (Illegal Activity on ComputersCompliance Measures for CIPA and the Internet Use Policy). But, I don’t expect the courts are really done with this case, so any change should be held until the federal courts have a final say.

That said, why do we have three separate policies that seem to overlap?

I do see one thing we could look at that is sort of related, integrating a policy of patron behavior in social media being used by TRL. I think setting expectations is an important element to a good online community and that might be something the policy committee might want to think about.
