Old Business


New Business

Brad Verter is putting together a collection of boston area archival material so we need to decide him what we want to give him. He expressed interest in Assassins things, fanzines, old minutes, all archival materials. There are many things in our library we should decide whether we want to give to him or if we want to keep it. If we want to keep it, we should decide why. We won't give anything to them without thinking about it, and an email will be sent out asking about things people think we should repeat. Doesn't want anything that was commercially distributed. No opinions, questions, or concerns.
