d.      Use of Library space for University Initiative
Chuck Tucker and Mike Andrechak talked to Sue Searing and Tom Teper about using the Library to house at least a portion of a new center that is bringing together the Center for Teaching Excellence, a portion of Online and Continuing Education, and a handful of positions in CITES; they are looking for a space that is centrally located, neutral territory, and highly visible. The entire program consists of approximately 48 people. Currently the program is spread out across campus and they want to find a space where they all can be housed together.
EC and the AULs discussed this issue both in terms of space and services.
