    Faculty may opt-in to Libnews and LibFac as long as they have a current UIUC Net ID and active UIUC email account.

    The issues are personal safety and Collection security. Bob will make changes to the policy to include leaving number 1 under Main Library building and deleting 2 & 3. Keeping number 4 under Grainger & UGL, changing number 2 to reflect no staff from 11:00pm – 7:00am, and deleting number 6. The policy will go forward to EC, by December 1 if there are no further comments.

    It was also brought up that the bookdrop is a collection security issue.

  4. Voyager downtime around Memorial Day for installation of new version — implications for work, etc – Bob Burger and Beth Sandore

    Divisions should send implications of this to Kim by December 2. What would be the best time to do this?

  5. Announcements, etc.

    Bob Burger – 698 negotiations continue. So far only non-economic issues have been discussed. Focus on economic issues will probably begin in December
