Went to the OU Tulsa Student Association (OUTSA) meeting tonight. Cynthia Patterson with the Knowledge Management Society was there–I think she said she was standing in for George. I need to double check with George, but so far, no one seems to know if the OU School of Library & Information Studies has a student representative. If there isn’t one, I may give it a shot. I want to make sure SLIS and OLISSA are properly registered and represented in case we need to solicit funds from OUTSA for activities.
Items of interest (for LIS/KM students) at the meeting included the announcement that OUTSA officers and Student Affairs will be selling 2-gig flash drives for $14, which is supposed to be a pretty good deal. As a representative from the IT Dept. was present, I asked if it was possible to capture the AV feed from meetings conducted between Norman and Tulsa, such as OLISSA meetings. This would make it possible to post recordings of meeting proceedings or guest lectures online. Apparently it is possible, and I got the name of the person I need to contact to set it up. However, it was suggested that we consult the legal dept. regarding posting such recordings on the Internet for general access due to privacy concerns. I will make contact regarding capturing the AV feed tomorrow, collect information, and then report my findings to OLISSA at the meeting Wednesday night. The next OUTSA meeting will be Sept. 25th, 2008, at noon.
