The Library Committee (LC) met in the fall (October 12, 2006) and winter quarters (February 21, 2007) in the Castles Room, Valley Library. At neither time did we have voting quorum. The LC did not meet in the spring quarter as there was not a time during which a voting quorum could be convened. For most of the fall term, the LC had a vacancy which was not filled.
Members of the LC assisted Valley Library staff with the following activities:
The Chair met with Mike Quinn to discuss LC activities on two occasions, October 26, 2006 and in the winter term. The concerns were lack of attendance by identified members and the apparent lack of interest of faculty and students. The LC did not fill the student seats in the 2006-2007 year.
Topics of discussion included continuing the discussion of open access, local archival of faculty intellectual property in addition to publishing in peer reviewed venues, and how to best engender conversation among members. Although members were enthusiastic and supportive about using email to conduct conversations, that did not materialize.
Recommendations for 2007 – 2008.
