Minutes

Present: Carol Turner, Rich Bennett, David Hickey, Jan Swanbeck, Carol Drum

1.       New Library Web Pages and Our Users

2.       Goals and Objectives

Carol said  that any changes or updates to the library goals and objectives should be  sent to Stacy Wall. A number of goals were discussed:

3.         Instruction Activities

           Carol said the library needs to take advantage of the Faculty Support Center.

4.         Internships

Carol said  that the library should look into areas in which internships could be established.  Many of the divisions could create  internship to provide library students from FSU and USF with experience in those areas. Jan said that when the  GIS position is filled in the Documents department, there might be an opportunity for an internship.

5.         Student Attire

A discussion was held to determine what guidelines should be put in place to make sure students working in public areas look professional. Access Services' guidelines state that students should have no bare feet, no bare midriffs, no bathing suits or short-shorts. Marston says no hats, sunglasses or earphones at the circulation desk.  It was decided that guidelines library-wide will include no earphones or hats, along with the Access Services guidelines.
