DEAN OF LIBRARIES, JAMES WILLIAMS
 
  • We have a new University President - Elisabeth "Betsy" Hoffman.She seems to focus on the main campus.
  • The budget has not changed - the 1% increase does not even cover inflation.
  • Vacant positions are being used to pay for the new storage facility.
  • Materials budget is being strained.
  • Must cancel $475,000 - $480,000 in serials.
  • 60% - 80% of the budget is people (salaries).
Questions for Jim
 
Q: Who wants the TS reorganization and why?
 
A: Materials themselves are changing; this changes the way we think about information. How do we acquire it, how do we describe it, and how do we provide access to it? Much is going to be completely outside our (Libraries') domain because of the way that publishing is changing. Many materials are now going directly to the Web, etc.
 
Action: The TS Agenda Setting Committee will accept questions and comments and set the agenda for either the next TS division meeting or a special meeting, which will be required to follow the agenda.
 

STAFF BUSINESS CARDS

  • Have been ordered for those who wanted them.
