Meeting began at 12:10pm
Present: Abood, Monhankumar, Dean, Schenck, Saeed, Malinowski, Sneed, Venta, Wehr, Birndorf, and Bryant
Regrets: Townsend, Lucas, Gregory-Bryson, and Simon
Bryant: Reminded committee members to please submit book and journal titles for the library's wish list.
Dr. Saeed recommended the journal, Foodborne Pathogens and Disease.
Dean: The CVM Library will be closed from December 24 to January 4, 2009.
Paper for the student center printers can only be picked up by one of the class representatives. Sneed will speak with the Vet Tech students to select a student center representative. The representatives should check the printer everyday for paper. Sneed will contact Dean and Abood after speaking with the students. There is a list of student representatives in the library.
Students have asked about the library staying open later. A general library survey was done in the spring of 2008, only 18 respondents asked for later library hours. The question was raised, what would it take for the library to stay open later? As of now the library is mainly used for study space and not for the collection. If the students want later hours they would have to come to a consensus and present a valid proposal to Dr. Sprecher.
Dean: Steve Bogdanski will replace the printer outside of G-200 within the next couple of weeks. Dr. Malinowski will follow up with him. Dr. Saeed is willing to donate an extra printer he has to the library.
Students have mentioned the noise level in the library. It is up to the students to police their fellow students concerning the noise level.
Abood: Dr. Abood and Dr. Monhankumar met with the Office of Faculty Development. The office is willing to provide materials to create exhibits in the veterinary medicine center display cases. Drs. Abood and Monhankumar were requested to ask for teaching and learning ideas from different departments for exhibits.
The CVM development office received a donation of $500.00 for non-technical/non-clinical reading and audiovisual material. Student reps will survey their classes for ideas. The CVM library committee will be utilized to make decisions.
Bryant: Last semester said she would look into students being able to fax items from the copy machine in the library. She met with Dr. Sprecher and Sharon Carr, unfortunately the college was not willing to pay for students to fax from the library. Occasionally the library would let students fax school related information from the library. As of Fall 2008 the library can no longer provide fax services. Students will have to go to Owen Hall, the Post Office in the Union, or to Kinkos to fax their information.
Online fax services were suggested. There are issues with getting past the college's firewall and who would pay for the service. Online fax services will be investigated further.
The meeting adjourned at 1:00pm.
Minutes respectfully submitted by Sheila Bryant.
