Library Ready for Business in Temporary Trailer
Over the summer, the Library on the West Windsor campus moved from its home of more than 36 years to temporary quarters located next to the AD building (on the side nearest the Conference Center and across from the BS building). The trailer is white with green trim; the staff anticipates remaining at this location until the middle to late spring of 2009.

During the relocation, the Library staff will continue to offer most, if not all, of the regular services faculty need when seeking instructional support, conducting research and/or seeking research assistance. For a list of services the library provides and information on how to access or locate them, click here.
If you do not see a service listed that you are interested in, please call ext. 3554 for assistance.

College Governance Council Reminder from Nancy Sobala
Academic Year 2008-2009 is about to begin! Dr. Donohue has given the CGC Executive Committee great support and encouragement this summer. In meeting with us the President emphasized the important role of CGC in reviewing proposals for policy and procedure and in oversight of the strategic plan implementation. We have been revising the by-laws and look forward to working with President Donohue as a stronger College Governance Council.

The first College Governance Council meeting of the academic year will be on Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 12 noon in CM109; the meeting will be simulcast to KC319 at the James Kerney Campus. The meeting is open to all MCCC faculty, staff and students. Below are links to the agenda and the minutes of the April 29th meeting. Please print these documents and bring them with you to the August 21st meeting.

Anyone who has been elected to CGC for FY08-09 is expected to attend. All 3 CGC Officer positions are open; elections are on the agenda. Please consider becoming one of the new officers. Below is a link to the list of Representative Groups of CGC; all groups are encouraged to have someone attend this meeting even if elections have not been held yet.
