7.       Evaluation of the committee (include anything that hindered or assisted the

          committee's work during the year).

          A.       Charge: Met

          B.       Personnel:  Library directors and staff provided active participation and assistance

          C.       Attendance:  In the spring semester, attendance at meetings was problematic.  One member resigned at the end of the semester and a second member had a class that was scheduled at the same time as meetings.  Meetings without quorum were held in January, February, and March

          D.       Responsibilities: Adequate

          E.       Activities: Promotion of liason for Joyner Library on the East Campus; Pilot program approved for Inter-library Loan for Schools of Nursing and Allied Health


8.       Suggestion(s) to the Chair of the Faculty and/or Faculty Senate for improving the

effectiveness of the committee. Assistance is needed in stressing to committee members of the importance of regular attendance at meetings.  Perhaps, if members are absent for 3 meetings per semester, they should be asked to resign from the committee to allow another faculty member to be appointed by the chair of the faculty.


 9.      Does the Committee’s organizational meeting next year need to be earlier than the date set this year?  No
