3. Library Committee Decision on June 2001 Referred Item
At the June 2001 Faculty Senate meeting, a Senator requested that the
Valley Library's policy of handling recalls of books be revised. The request
was forwarded to the Library Committee who reviewed the issue and recommends
that current policy be maintained, although they encourage the Circulation
staff make more widely known the informal practice of directly contacting
holders of recalled books when a particular book is urgently needed. The
Committee memo can be viewed on the web
4. Faculty Senate Handbook Update
Faculty Senate Handbook materials
have been updated and can be found on the Senate web site. Since experience
has shown that the majority of Senators do not use the updated materials,
and since the web site is frequently updated, hard copies of the Handbook
are no longer being distributed. The web site contains information about
Senators, committees, agendas, minutes, etc.
5. Senators Electronic Discussion List
