Review of SUNYConnect Survey results
Esta provided detailed analysis of the results and the taskforce discussed.  We found that there was a good response rate.  EBSCO's current package is valued, many support renewing as is, many wouldn't consider spending/price increases without more information, and most are interested in shared streaming video, e-book, and DEI collections. 

Some noted EBSCO issues with CDI and linking.  

Communication Plan
The taskforce plans to hold two community updates.  One on 9/22 and the other sometime in October.  The SLC meeting will also include an update from the taskforce.  Contact will be made with Sector Directors by sector representatives. It's likely we'll contact vendors at the end of the year and set up meetings, once we have a better idea of how we are moving forward.
