Minutes approved. Announcements: None. Chairs Report: Naomi doesnt have an update from Senate. Administrative Update (Judy Russell): Judy has not heard back from the Provost on Market Equity yet. She expects a favorable response, however. AFA/Music: this is not a library initiative. The College of Fine Arts has serious space issues. Dean Lavelli asked Judy if LW could accommodate those collections and the obvious answer is yes due to advanced planning of collection growth. Meetings with CFA department chairs and faculty are all continuing to look at the issue. There is a student petition to block the move. Judy thinks resolution will happen by the end of the semester, but the decision is not in the libraries hands. CFA faculty concerns of maintaining specialized library faculty have been reassured and addressed. Discussions of localizing the collections as Judaica currently is ensue, but the collections will probably be mixed into the larger LW collection. There is a possibility of separate discussions relating to the Music Library. Potentially some of the music collections could move, thereby allowing more student space in the Music Library, while some of the collections remain. The planning is moving separately for the two libraries. The recommendations will come from the two colleges. Storage: Judy hopes they are close to a decision. She sent a cost-share document to CSUL members so that other schools will know what their expected financial contributions will be. Two separate (but managed together) storage facilities will operate, with the new facility acting as a kind of pressure relief valve to catch overflow from ALF. ALF will remain as it is. The Provost is hoping that these spaces will be used as leverage for having the new facility built. ALF is at capacity. Subject specialists can soon expect to receive spreadsheets from Diane Bruxvoort requesting that they review e-journal holdings of Sage, Elsevier and possibly Wiley to develop the next list print journals that should move to storage or be discarded. Items on the discard list may be requested to remain in the collection at the request of colleagues in the state. JSTOR, IEEE have already been analyzed for possible items that may be discarded across CSUL. Report from Law via Pat Reakes: search for associate director is underway; interviews


start this week. LFA Committees: Dan reported from University Libraries Committee (ULC). Please pass on suggestion and questions for Dan to bring to that committee. The ULC reports to the Senate. New Business: Due to restrictions of the technology in 1A, lets all try to sit stage-right of the podium next time.
