(2) Michigan Council of Federal Depository Libraries Report, Sept. 16, 1999

News & Announcements From the Field

Libraries that submitted self studies this year may not receive replies until next spring. It was previously announced that the reviews would be done this fall. Libraries inspected in 1994 can still expect letters requesting a self study but probably at the end of the year. This is per Ann's conversation with Sheila McGarr.

During a recent site visit Ann Sanders discovered an unauthorized housing agreement. It was the feeling by the council that it is important to get a better handle on any selective housing agreements. Paula will send a letter to the selectives about improving outreach efforts to special housing locations. It was also proposed that Ferris State be added to the state disposal distribution list and allowed to use Documents Assistant software. This is in recognition of their long-standing and demonstrated commitment to the goals of the depository program.
