1. Approve minutes from July 21
Approved with changes.
2. Question Time
The Exceptional Dewey Report was well received. The report recommends switching to LC for newly-acquired materials in the Literatures and Languages Library. EC approved this recommendation. Subject librarians need to talk to faculty constituencies regarding these changes.
The hiring plan is about ready to go. Paula will send it to the Budget Group and EC for comments. It is due by the end of the day on July 30.
Based on input at the last faculty meeting, the Faculty Governance white paper will be revised to include mentoring and job sharing.
Fee money - Scott Walter has sent the Library's recommendations to the Campus Fee Committee for their input.
Paula is drafting a response to the comments received regarding the Library Stewarding Excellence Report.
The Library was asked about having a wedding and reception using the grounds between main and UGL and using the Marshall Gallery. EC determined the possible liability was greater than any fee we might receive.

Susan gave some highlights of the report. The report has been well received with a few follow-up items. EC approved the report.
