Richard Pollard, University Librarian
Subject: Library Policy
Richard Pollard explained the necessity for the library policy and noted some CSU campus do have limits. The reductions vary across 9 categories of borrowers and include changed limits for both books and interlibrary loan books and article checkouts. He noted there were only 7 faculty that are in excess of the 150 borrowing limit and only 2 faculty that were over the inter-library loan limit. He indicated he would like to implement this policy for a year to see how it plays out.
Dr. Brunelle, faculty of History Department, expressed concern that faculty had not been consulted more widely. Senator Arkenberg questioned the need for a policy restricting the number of resources that can be borrowed, especially one that differentiates between full- and part-time faculty and staff. Senator Hewitt also expressed concern about the distinction between full-time faculty and lecturers. Senator Nanjundappa said the faculty should be surveyed to see what a reasonable limit would be.
It was m/s [Fitch/Nanjundappa] to refer this policy back to the Library Committee for serious consideration.
It was m/p [Emry] to call the question.
The motion passed to refer this policy back to the Library Committee.
It was m/s/p [Buck/Nanjundappa] to adjourn. The meeting adjourned at 11:30 a.m.
