University Senate

Proposed: March 27, 1998

Adopted: As amended, without dissenting votes, March 27, 1998




BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate, while thanking the Provost and his Advisory Committee for their efforts to resolve the problems of the Libraries and AcIS,

-regrets that the administration has not funded the initiatives proposed by the Frye Report for fiscal year 1998;

-calls on the administration to fund Vice-President Sloan's Action Plan fully, which we view as a first step in responding to the Frye Report;

-requests the Provost to report at the April meeting of the Senate on the Libraries and AcIS budget for fiscal year 1999; and

-requests the President to arrange a meeting between the Education Committee of the Trustees and the Senate Libraries Committee or its representatives in June. As part of this meeting, attendees should discuss additional areas of improvement called for by the Frye Report but not addressed in the Action Plan. The Libraries Committee should then report its recommendations for further action to the Senate at its first meeting of the fall semester 1998.

Proponent: Committee on Libraries and AcIS
