Meyer Library to Be Replaced
University Librarian Michael Keller has written a letter to all members of H&S Departments in the Humanities and Social Sciences discussing the early planning processes for replacing Meyer Library, and relocating the East Asia Library (EAL), Academic Computing, and library Technical Services, currently located in Meyer.
Of particular interest to many faculty and students is “the decision not to build a new structure to house the EAL. Rather, the EAL selectors and public service staff and a portion of the EAL collection will be relocated to Green Library, resulting in the displacement of some Green Library collections. Those displaced collections, as well as the majority of the EAL collection, will continue to be available, but will be stored offsite at the Stanford Auxiliary Library 3 in Livermore and available through a paging service.”
Keller notes that “throughout this year, C-Lib (the Academic Council Committee on Libraries) will be conducting a thorough and systematic process of consultation with departments and individuals who use the EAL, Green Library and the materials they both hold.”
All interested parties are invited to attend a Town Hall Meeting, at which Michael Keller, along with Provost Etchemendy, Prof Doug Brutlag (chair of C-Lib), Prof. Michael Marrinan, and others will present the preliminary plans for the reorganization of Green Library and listen to comment and criticism. This meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 28 November 2007, 5:00 pm-6:30 pm, in Room 290 of the Law School. Space will be limited, so plan to arrive early.
NOTE:The location for the Town Hall meeting has been changed from the Law School to Kresge Auditorium. Date and time remain unchanged: Wednesday, Nov. 28th, 5:00-6:30.
