University Library Committee Minutes
June 24, 2004

Present: J. Langlois, C. Roney, J. Rothchild, C. Schochet, D. Magidson, Chair;
B. Lessin, L. Sutton, S. Yee, staff; R. Schochet, guest.

  1. The minutes of the March 23, 2004 were approved as distributed.
  2. Rivka Schochet of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone led the Committee
    in planning for the upcoming program on the USA PATRIOT ACT. The Provost and
    Board of Governors endorse the idea of an educational program on this topic.
    The goal is to sponsor a balanced presentation of the issues. Confirmed speakers
    are Jeffrey Collins, U.S. Attorney, and Kary Moss, Executive Director of the
    ACLU of Michigan. Robert Sedler, Law School faculty member, is also willing
    to speak as his schedule permits. Marc Kruman, Director of the Center for
    the Study of Citizenship, has indicated a willingness to co-sponsor the program.
    The focus of the program will be on the academic aspects of the topic, i.e.
    privacy and intellectual freedom concerns of libraries, as well as immigration
    issues affecting students, rather than on criminal issues. A possible agenda
    might include:
    USA PATRIOT ACT and the Academy
