Meeting Minutes for June 26, 2012

September 7, 2012

On June 26 the GNYMLA met at the NYPL Service Center located in Long Island City.  After our business meeting, we got a tour of the archival processing facilities and the book sorter. Video of the book sorter has been posted on our facebook page.  Thanks to Sally Bauer (Vice-Chair) for putting this tour together; it was a highly informative and entertaining meeting. This was especially true for those of us thinking about offering request and branch delivery
services at our own libraries.
The business meeting was short but focused on two topics:

We plan to hold elections for the Chair of the GNYMLA sometime in August.  Please contact the nominating committee chair (Kenneth Kauffman, if you would like to run. The elections will be done electronically, as they were done last year.

A link to the 2012-2013 membership form has been made available here, on the GNYMLA home page. This is also a reminder that you can now save a stamp and pay with PayPal. More information on this is linked to the membership page.

December 2009 Meeting

“For the Record”

As the daughter of Mike Biel, an extraordinarily enterprising “omnivore” collector and major ARSC presence, Leah has grown up with and developed an unusually keen appreciation of the collector’s personality and foibles.

“For the Record” is a one-hour video documentary that examines the activity of record collecting from a positive view of 16 collectors, many of whom are ARSC members. Traveling from Toronto to Texas, from Connecticut to Kentucky, I visited most of the collectors in their home base where you will see them, their collections, and even some archival footage from ARSC conventions past. The video was done as my thesis for the Master of Fine Arts degree at Brooklyn College”.

Introduced at last spring’s ARSC Conference in Washington, D.C., “For the Record” is both informative and richly entertaining.
