Brad Schaffner explained that co-chair Cathy Zeljak was out of the country
and unable to attend the meeting.
Minutes: The minutes of the Boston Midwinter Conference meeting
in 2005 were approved as submitted.
- SEES Home Page: Brad reported that Cathy continues to work on
SEES webpages (http://www.gwu.edu/~sees/)
and encourages anyone with suggestions to contact Cathy directly
- Virtual Meetings: Brad led a discussion of virtual meetings
the Access and Preservation Committee for the 2006 Midwinter Conference.
It was felt that this committee relies on both conferences for project
demonstrations and this would not work well with a virtual meeting.
Instead it was decided that the meetings would be held at the conferences
and committee members unable to attend would be kept informed via minutes
distributed soon after the conference.
- Access to Russian Archives Demonstration: Kirill Fesenko,
director of Online Publishing for East View Information Services, Inc.
gave a demonstration of the database that the University of Kansas, East
View, Rosarkhiv, and the Department of Education are creating, funded by a
Title VI grant awarded to the University of Kansas. The digital database
will include approximately 105 regional and national guides to Russian
archives. Work on the database will be completed this fall, and the
database will be freely available on both the University of Kansas and the
