Opening

  • Marcia Pirone will be the Kresge rep.
  • Derika Avery has resigned as Member at Large
    - Miguel will talk to the 3rd runner up from the last election about serving out her term.
  • Mimi Curphey has retired, so we need a new rep from reference
  • Mary Ann Mousley is leaving, so a new rep is needed from her department.
  • A new person is needed to cover Sandborn
    - The reference person will cover Sandborn
  • Liaisons need to be reminded of their duties (perhaps a job description should be sent out to all members of the board?)
    - Phyllis will send out the new descriptions.
  • A list will be created on Blitz to make it easier for people to contact the DCLSA and for us to contact each other.

Discuss plans for upcoming Awards Banquet (Jill Wilcox)

  • In pretty good shape. The banquet will be the 5th of September at Collis.
  • Catered
  • Flowers will be ordered soon.
  • We will order less coffee than last year.
  • Notices and adverts will be sent this afternoon.
  • Could use setup help (around 11:30) and breakdown at the end.

Discuss new policy about when is the exact moment a library employee celebrates his/her anniversary at Dartmouth.

  • We can get the dates from personnel?
    - Personnel takes care of the years of service to the college, we celebrate years of service to the library, so that wouldn’t work.
  • Should we work with the calendar year as well?
  • Part of the confusion may be because the date of the lunch has slipped later and later each year.
  • Keeping track of the time is difficult for people who have served and then left and come back.
  • We will do calendar year.

Upcoming events: (report from Barb Krieger about Craft Fair)

  • E-mail enclosure from Miguel.

Holiday party

  • Where will we have it?
  • Could have it in the tower room with a more appetizer menu, and not need as much of a setup.
  • Table in front of each fireplace, and punch in the center.
  • Could we have it in the 1902 room?
  • Fri Dec. 13th will be the party (2nd Friday in December)
