Library Professional Staff Mt. March 10, 2008


March 10, 2008, 9:15 a.m., Hovde

Present: Chris, Andi, Ryan, John, Lindy, Germano.

John asked if there were any conflicts in changing the April 7th meeting to April 9 at 9:15 a.m. This was fine with those present.

John handed out the library materials budget report of March 7, 2008, for review. All were encouraged to get in orders for their departments and for Paideia as the end of the year is approaching.

Andi had attended the Paideia staff meeting last Thursday. She reported to them on the questions students were asking and any problems that had arisen. She had also met with the Writing Committee. Let her know if you have any suggestions on how the library can interact with these two, she will relay the information and continue to report back to us.

John said the summer schedule would be discussed at the next meeting.

Chris gave an update on the library furniture situation. Asked if there were any priorities to begin the replacement. Would like to get started on this this spring.

Ryan spoke on the pressures of equipment checkout and software requests. He will keep the group updated as he gets more information.

Germano presented reference titles to review to purchase or take other action.

John gave a demo on reviewing proposed changes to Magnus.
