Library Faculty Meeting Agenda Committee

College Budget Meetings

These meetings came as a result of the Library Allocation Steering Committee recommendation to strengthen the communication of academic priorities to the Library.  The LASC recommendation calls for a twice-annual meeting with college deans or their representatives.  As a result, the Provost shared all the college budget requests this year among the deans.  He asked that they be kept confidential.

Karen Schmidt has been meeting with the deans or their representatives and has asked subject librarians to join her.  A summary of the meetings that have been held to date was distributed.  There are some over-arching themes that emerged from these discussions, including the strongly-articulated need for standard medical journals, especially in electronic format, and for medical reference materials (from ALS, Social Work, Engineering and Vet Med); the growing interdisciplinary nature of study and research on campus; and the strong interest in having the Library maintain its archival collections for future research.
