  • Thank the deans for the opportunity to speak to them about the library’s budget We recognize that we are probably heading into leaner times as an institutional whole, but the library has been experiencing lean times for several years now. Not currently a crisis, but a situation. A “crunch”, and an eventual crisis.

    2. 2. LIBRARIES AND APPLE PIE <ul><li>“ A university is just a group of buildings around a library.” - Shelby Foote </li></ul><ul><li>“ The Library is the Heart of the University.” - Charles W.

    3. 3. LIBRARIES AND ACCREDITATION <ul><li>“ Unless libraries are used and valued by students and faculty, their impact on learning is small. In short, a library—or a learning resource center—exists to support learning and teaching. To make learning resources an integral part of a student’s education, an organization will have to invest in appropriate materials and equipment and provide the staff that can maintain these resources, train students in their use, and provide assistance when it is needed. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>– Criterion 3, Core Component 3d, Accreditation Handbook, The Higher Learning Commission (accrediting agency for UCM) </li></ul></ul>
