Attending: Larry Landis, Heidi Brayman-Hackel, Christine
Armer, Shiao-Ling Yu, Darlene Judd, Gary Beach.
Library Staff: Bonnie Allen, Karyle Butcher
Landis: Minutes were approved.
Beach: Continues to work on Category One proposals. Suggests that a mechanism
be in place that will prevent Cat. 1 proposals from going through without
appropriate library funding. Funding would be moved from departmental budget
to the library for three years, than library absorbs. Beach distributed
a note outline proposed language - he seeks responsed by June 1.
Beach: Hopes to have work on cumulative financial effect of Cat. 1 proposals
available by end of June - maybe for July meeting.
Brayman-Hackel reported on the distribution of study carrels. Suggest that
faculty assigned a set number for long term uses; remain assigned first
come first served to faculty and graduate students. Further proposed that
except for long term use, study carrels should be issued on a shared basis.
Finally, will send survey t current/past users asking why they need a study
carrel, how often they use it, ideal time needed, would they consider sharing
ang final comments. Survey results available for June meeting.
Butcher: Library will be charging for printing cents/page. Currently, library
spends about $70,000 on printing. Brayman-Hackel thought 7 cents was too
great an increase especially for CLA faculty. Committee discussed further
and voted for the 7 cent charge.
Some discussion of Summer meetings - agreed to meet in June with possible
Deputy Vice Provost for Information Services
