May 25, 2000

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 e-mail discussions.
