  1. Approval of Minutes -

  2. New Business -

  3. Based on information gathered from librarians, course instructors, documentation, statistics, and other sources, the report makes one recommendation for immediate action, and discusses long-term options.

    The proposal for AY 2003-2004 suggests that sections of English 201 and English 301 "be assigned on a rotational basis among the New Brunswick library faculty." Subsequent discussion resulted in the suggestion that the rotation be modified to exclude some librarians. Essentially, only those librarians who agree to be included would be part of the rotation. Other staffing options should also be explored, including setting aside part of the voucher budget to hire outside help.
