- We have been asked by the DOC to update our charter and roster under the new UCL advisory structure; let's review this
- Group consensus is that we are primarily an information sharing group with aspirations to propose collaborative projects. We will step back from more substantive projects/initiatives such as the "DH @ UC Libraries" site that we started to set up last year, as nobody has the resources to commit to this. This is also in line with the new (as of Oct 2015) UC Libraries Advisory Structure Guidelines for CKGS, which states that "Although CKGs may communicate with groups in the UCL Advisory Structure, they are not intended to make systemwide policy decisions, manage projects or project teams, or oversee ongoing services."
- Group decisions: 1) we will scale back phone meetings to be on a quarterly basis. 2) We will continue to hold "virtual" meetings via a shared Google Doc in the in between months, as this has been a good way to share information about what is going on around the system in DH.
- It was agreed that many of the group members' departments are interested and invested in DH, but largely still figuring out to various degrees what this means locally. It will be good to share information in the group and hear about what is going on systemwide, with hopes for collaboration at a later date.
