E. Davis reviewed the financial statements, noting that we are one-third through the fiscal year and pointing out the areas of Professional & Contractual and Capital Outlay expenses. Due to the PSIP II renovation project, they are trending higher than one-third spent (as would normally be expected at this time of year) but will fall back in line as we move through the year.
R. Havenstein-Coughlin and N. Szczepanski submitted a conference proposal for the Rethink It: On Designing Libraries for a New Age conference, based on their experiences involving both staff and patrons in redesigning the Checkout and Reference Desk areas to conform with Strategic Plan objectives. Their proposal has been accepted and they will be presenting at Grand Valley State University in August.
