  1. SciFinder? (Teri)
    1. (7/26) Lauren is leaving CAS, so I'll touch base with her replacement once announced.  Hoping to sunset next summer the old version
  2. WOS (Ruth?) - 2022 to sunset classic version - continue to use Classic for Biosis. Can't email results - some time before it happens.  Email from Classic.  EndNote is not working properly. Send a message or a cc to Ruth when you find issues. JCR will also be converting.
  3. Anything Alse?
  1. ASEE - End of July  - Pretty well attended (118 libns). programming was excellent. It is recorded. People are looking forward to getting back to the schmoozing.  A lot of vendors, and they participated in the sessions or even just attending. Navigation can be weird, especially for visiting vendors. Really good session on Overleaf...
  2. FSCI (Force 11 Scholarly Communications Institute) - Summer Institute - Late July - Focus on Earth Science and Data Reproducibility.  First time with a discipline based course in FSCI.  Concepts cross discipline barriers. Data management planning, within and outside of the UC.
  3. STEM Librarians Collaborative - July 21-22.  Impressive.  Ambitions program.  Everything is available openly. Well-organized. Could be an alternative to more expensive conferences.
  4. UN Science Sustainability session was excellent [link
  5. SLA next month
  6. Charleston will be virtual and in person - how will that work?

SWAG from IOP!

UCB - Three campus libraries currently open. The rest reopen on Aug 25 with limited hours as we rebuild and train student workforce. We will expand to our "normal" hours on Sep 22 but hours will still be shorter because most of our evening/weekend supervisor positions are vacant. Print ILL will also resume on Aug 25. We are completing a furniture refresh at the Chemistry Library before reopening, and there is planning underway for an addition to the Bechtel Engineering Center that will impact the Engineering Library. Because of budget cuts and hiring freeze, very few vacancies being filled currently – though waiting for announcements about new Head of Metadata Services and new AUL for Special Collections & Director, Bancroft Library.
