Library Committee

May 29, 2003

Review and approve minutes from last meeting.

Old business:

  1. Update on library's position in university structure in light of "path of distinction" plan that has emerged from the OSU 2007 process:

    "The University Library, headed by the University Librarian, will separate from Information Services and report to the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, effective July 2003, with a charge to improve principally through private resources the quality and value of library services such that OSU qualifies for national recognition by 2007-08, such as by the Associated Research Libraries or another appropriate entity. The library will be served by a management council and business center shared with other units."

  2. Update on shared collections with U. of O.

  3. Discuss the kind of information the library needs on faculty and student use of services and facilities. Discuss methods for obtaining that information, especially if there is anything needed beyond the current Library User Survey led by Bonnie Allen.

New business:

  1. Discuss role and goals of FS Library Committee next year - ideas for next year's committee

  2. Thanks to 'term-limited' members and student member of the committee.
