B. Dean’s Announcements

  1. Faculty Resource room 1350 was reconfigured to house vending machines.   This room is now known as "Jimmy K's Campus Canteen".   Library Services purchased tables and chairs for room.   A microwave was donated by a Library Services staff member.   The vending machines were moved to this room and a coffee machine added.   This room is more useable and accessible to patrons of the library.   There are also a few internet connections available in this room.
  2. Library Services now has available a portable coat rack for events held in JCKL.   Have added drive-up book drop to make returning library materials more accessible.   Art work has been added throughout the building, from the University art collection.   Currently work with the Art Department to display student and faculty art work.   Currently there is a display of tea pots done by a student art major.   Another item that was added was concrete benches at each of the three entrances to the building.   Benches provide a place for patrons to sit prior to the building opening for the day or to relax.
  3. Will schedule other guest speakers at future LAC meetings.
