    • Lorraine requested a report from WestConnect of all technology classrooms that are left unlocked at the end of the day where either the police lock them or they auto lock at 11 pm.  This is done but it is not in a readable format.   
    • Lorraine to review the Arts & Sciences criteria for purchasing new computers and printers for faculty.
    • Mitch Wagener and Veronica Kenausis agreed to test free bibliography software and EndNote and do a write-up with recommendation.

    • Veronica and Rebecca were asked to prepare a list of questions relating to copyright issues for Theresa O’Brien, Contract Compliance Officer at the SO.

    • Lorraine will try to order machines before the 11/12/09 ITC meeting. 
    • Lorraine will draft a memo to faculty on how budget reductions will impact technology for faculty (hopefully before 11/12 meeting) and share it with the ITC at the 11/12/09 meeting.
    • Dan and Kit to finalize head counts for their schools by the next meeting. 
    • A summary of machine installations done from FY04 through October 8, 2009 was distributed. Lorraine asked the school technology chairs and Veronica to verify as much information as possible and to cross out any machine that faculty/staff don’t have any more.
