Title VI Matters:
Judy Alspach presented the budget report ($17,000.00 available).
Marion noted that there was no information on the new Title VI budget and/or potential cuts yet.

Project Reports:
  • Arquivo Historico de Mocambique project:
    The group discussed at length what next steps for the Arquivo Historico de Mocambique project should be. $10,000.00 had been approved for this project at an earlier meeting, but in the meantime, a problem arose where, citing a cultural heritage law, Mocambique will not be able to make master copies of the digitization available to CAMP/Title VI. We would still have free access to the materials but would depend on the Mocambique Archive’s website for that access. The Title VI librarians decided to cut their originally approved funding of $10,000.00 by $9000, with $1000 still allocated for potential future collaboration with the Arquivo.
  • Kabarole District Archives (Western Uganda) digital project:
    The Title VI Librarians had allocated funding towards the preservation and digitization of the Kabarole District Archives the previous year. The project was progressing smoothly, although the project leaders realized that additional funding would be needed to complete the digitization. Again, after detailed discussion, the Title VI librarians group approved an additional $12,636 to complete the project. Anticipated completion is in 2013.

    Future Projects:
    There was no time to discuss this agenda item, although the concept of cooperative collection development was raised as a future discussion item.
