University Librarian's Report - Gaunt

Brainstorming on Academic Excellence Funds - Gaunt

Discussed possible proposals from the Libraries for the University's $3M Academic Excellence Fund, which will provide support for initiatives that fall outside the categories typically considered in an annual budget, including but not limited to:

Following Cabinet discussion of submitted ideas from faculty, four proposals were thought to potentially meet the University's criteria and considered worthy of follow-up. Cabinet will look into developing the four ideas into proposals and make a decision at the November 4 Cabinet meeting as to whether any should be submitted. Final proposals are due to Vice President Furmanski's office by November 13.

Discussion and Participation on Topics for Next Phase of DLI - Gaunt

Cabinet discussed brainstorming ideas Gaunt sent to AULs on October 13 in preparation for the update of the DLI. The purpose is to invite teaching faculty to small discussions in areas where we think we will be expanding and to get their opinions. Over the next two months, Sewell will work with Collection Development Council and the selectors who are liaisons to their disciplines to seek input from their faculty related to collection and services that will help shape the topics for discussion in the focus group sessions; will discuss at a Libraries Faculty meeting or a special debriefing meeting.
