Brief overview of the library (including budget and the strategic plan) – Karyle Butcher
The purpose of the library is to provide information for students and faculty in the best way that works for them, improve on how the library can make information available, teaching, economic development, staff development and diversity. The library is looking to the FSLC to see where the library can improve and where the bumps are. The library budget is allocated for books and journals, salaries, and a portion to maintain the library. The library also works with the English department to sponsor and bring in authors for the Visiting Writers Series. Currently the library is spending a lot of time balancing what should be digital and what should be paper. Most faculty want digital for access away from campus, while students access the materials online but want to be in the library. There is no longer a food and drink policy but a focus on cleaning up after yourself instead and recycling. The reference books on the second floor were moved out and back into the stacks over the summer. If anyone on the committee is interested in a tour of the Library, Archives or Special Collections please contact Karyle, Faye or Jennifer.
