which have been surrendered by librarians who left this year. Even though

copies on his "wheel" (round notebook storage unit) in the Cataloging area
in McHenry Library.
2. Job descriptions submitted by the members of the Executive Council were
discussed. They should be very useful for people assuming a new office,
or for those considering running for an office. Jahns will add them to
the LAUC-SC web site, which is at http://library.ucsc.edu/lauc/
Submitted by Cynthia Jahns, Secretary.
