Program Committee Minutes -- Orlando/Chicago-2004/2005
January 15, 2005
Present: Inna Gudanets (Stanford), Diana Brooking (Washington),
Byrd (Indiana), Brenda Carter (Pittsburgh), David Chroust (Texas A&M),
Soobum Kim (Stanford), Sandra Levy (Chicago), Dan Pennell (Pittsburgh),
Janice Pilch (Illinois), Leena Siegelbaum (Harvard Law)
- The minutes of the Orlando Annual Conference meeting in 2004 were
approved as submitted.
- Janice Pilch reminded those in attendance that we are not required
to plan an annual program and that it is not the responsibility of the
SEES Chair to coordinate the planning of a program when we do have one.
- For the upcoming 2005 Annual Conference in Chicago, SEES will
co-sponsor a program with WESS on "Digitizing Medieval Manuscripts: East &
West". Janice reported that 3 speakers have been identified and have
agreed to speak, including Dr. David Birbaum, a professor from the Dept.
of Slavic of Languages & Literature at the University of Pittsburgh. The
other two speakers are David Reynolds, metadata librarian from Johns
Hopkins University, and Dr. Colum Hourihane, the Director of the Index to
Christian Art at Princeton.
The program will be on Monday, June 27th, 10:30-12:00. SEES and WESS each
contributed $750.00 to support the program. However, additional funding
may be needed, since there are two non-librarians on the panel, and WESS
will look for the additional funding.
Inna reported on the remaining work to be done, including publicity and
planning details. Publicity will include advertising in the SEES
Newsletter, slavlibs, CRL News, and the WESS Newsletter. There are many
equipment details to be arranged for the program itself.
- Dan Pennell reported that no program is being planned for the 2006
Annual Conference in New Orleans.
