President has asked for a proposal this proposal involves clearing out the basement of Marston. Moving all the science journals out (this project was already in process). Move of government documents out of Marston. Gov docs staff is making decisions about what needs to stay on campus and what can go to storage. Making plans on moving collection to ALF and ILF. Gov docs is going to be split up.


Move maps to SASC (physically and administratively). Jan Swanbeck will stay on campus as gov docs librarian. Office in Marston or Library West. Chelsea Dinsmore and Joe Aufmuth TBD about their job descriptions in the future. No layoffs of staff with this move. This is not a cost savings proposal. Gov docs as a tenure home will remain as such so long as those persons desire it to remain it as such. L107 will remain as a conference room/classroom. Staff lounge will also remain on 1st level but it may not be as spacious. Restrooms will be expanded. Interior designer and architect are working on designing what space would like like.
