    This has got to be a first! This gives us plenty of time to strategize and plan a statement.

  2. I posted a question under “General” but haven’t heard whether it will be picked up. Here’s a question which is more central to the future of SUNY libraries: For years SUNY libraries and the SUNY Office of Library and Information Services have been collaborating to provide resources across the SUNY system, which has resulted in demonstrable efficiencies while providing good base levels of resources to each campus. In the face of both (1) the proposed Public Higher Education Empowerment and Innovation Act — which, by promoting only 6 campuses and by allowing differential tuition, pits the SUNY campuses against each other for students, majors, and resources — AND (2) a new strategic plan for SUNY which doesn’t mention SUNY libraries, these give rise to the view that the Chancellor of SUNY _devalues_ the idea of SUNY as a system, that collaboration among SUNY campuses is discouraged in favor of competition, and that SUNY libraries are of no account in the big picture of SUNY’s future. What is your response?
