Minutes of the Executive Committee
The committee has held discussions about the value of continuing the Librarian's Table. It will be re-instituted in the fall, every other month. Advertising will be done via HULInfo only; no mass mailings will be sent out. The committee is thinking of including speakers and/or tours with each lunch. The traditional library tours will also be done again next year. The committee will have five spaces open for members next year, leaving three continuing members. Martin has asked if one of three remaining members will chair the committee in the next year.
Suzanne Kemple and Naomi Ronen met with the committee to provide updates on their work with the University Benefits Committee.
All members of the current committee will remain on the committee for next year. Rotation of membership will begin in 2000, when four people will rotate off the committee. As committee members are added, their terms will reflect the desired three-year rotation necessary to keep continuity and new blood.
The committee will not meet again until August or September when they will begin planning programs for next year.
