  4. Discussion
    1. Planning for 2011-2013 Technology Plan
      1. We will need a draft of the 2011-2013 Technology Plan by the March meeting of the TC for discussion.  We have a plan in place for 2011 and 2012 but need to start thinking about 2013. Please brainstorm some possible services and/or new technologies to add in the third year of the plan.
    2. E-Commerce discussion
      1. At a recent AC meeting, one cluster expressed frustration with the timeline for the e-commerce project and demanded that this service be in place by July 2011. The technology plan, adopted by this committee, has a timeline for investigation into e-commerce to be completed by the end of 2011, and for having a service in place in 2012. This service would connect various e-commerce services to SCLS services such as the ILS and Library Online, and in no way precludes a library from taking credit cards through their own merchant account

      1. This document details services provided by SCLS including mobile devices and gadgets such as e-book readers.  It will be used by the Cost Formula Workgroup as well.
