SLA needs volunteers to help clean up the student group area.
Still looking for nominations for SLA events coordinator and fund raising coordinator. Kyle Willis has been nominated for fund raising coordinator, but would like to have some competition.
Fall Events Update: Tours of the Historical Society Archives in Phoenix and the Tucson Juvenile Prison Library are on the table. Consensus is any tour would need to be on a Saturday. Dave Langen will schedule and plan Tucson Juvenile Prison Library tour, but still looking for someone to coordinate Phoenix tour with contact Sue Irwin. Volunteers? Also suggested to hold tour on Oct. 22 instead of Special Library Panel scheduled for same day.
Student group presidents met with Tom Wilding on the 14th to talk about student involvement in organizations, faculty advising concerns, and faculty involvement in group events. Presidents will also meet with new director on Oct. 26.
RUSA proposal to meet with SIRLS students for $400 in brochure fees is discussed. Decision is made that cost is prohibitive but group is welcome to attend normal library panel functions.
Angelina Merritt suggests looking into forming an international student group to discuss overseas career opportunities, international library interests, etc. Suggestion that International Relations Roundtable could provide some of those services is offered.
Meeting adjourned at 6:00.
