1. Changes to the Faculty Services Page

The group discussed the implications of adding a new header on the faculty services page regarding policies covering the research assistants borrowing card.

The group also decided the current faculty page will need a TOC to help users navigate the growing amount of content available on the page.

2. Building and Service Desk Hours
