1) Capital Campaign Update
Marcia said the campaign is being tied into the Alumni Association, reunions and Gator Clubs.  Volunteers are being sought to present programs at meetings. Dale said they would need several programs because the alumni and Gator clubs are always looking for speakers.
Marcia also announced that former Governor Bryant visited the library and wants to make a gift to the library. He toured Special Collections and the Digital Library.
2) Goals and Objectives
John Ingram said the goals and objectives document was one of the most useful tools they’d had in a long time. Dale said the staff liked seeing what they have done. It important that the department heads make sure things are included so that staff is recognized for the work they did during the year.

The Marston Science Library lighting project was added to the Facilities goals and strategies.
Also discussed was CORC. Many research libraries are using it. The group needs to look at where the library is going and how it is integrated resources from out of the library and those digitized here. This will be discussed in the future.
Goals and Strategies

3) Budget Issues
Barbara handed out the budget for 1999/00. She said with the UF Bank, money can be moved from one account to another, but state money cannot be put into a non-state account. Because of the ability to move the money, the $1,000 in OCO won’t hurt the library.
There is the same amount of student work-study money as last year. There is no more OPS money.
The UF Visa cards are only good for $500 at a time, and $5,000 can be charged per month. Only certified users can use the cards. The library has three cards, one each in Acquisitions, Facilities and Administration.
4) Current hiring procedures
Denise Bogart-Caballero explained the procedures for hiring new employees. She is working to consolidate the steps so that positions are filled more quickly. She asked that supervisors give her a draft position vacancy description and list of committee members so that she can get the position advertisement out right away. She also reported on the progress of several position vacancies.
