Brian and Ellen
They are creating a SUNYLA presentation (with Fang) which will include a discussion

the transition between print and electronic versions of books and
how they are dealing
with the problems that arise.
Mark Smith prefers to have separate retreats this year. Steve asked for topics we
sider for the Herrick Retreat. It was suggested that the same topics that
were discussed at the Herrick Library [Faculty] Committee would be of interest to the

maybe the Retention Roundtable report (and
others) will revive this concept
