The committee consists of one Faculty Council liaison, as well as seven faculty representatives, one from each college. The President of Faculty Council nominates the faculty representatives. There is one Graduate Faculty Council representative, nominated by the President of the Graduate Faculty Council, and one staff representative, nominated by the President of SAC.

Thank You to Faculty Involved in The Rudy Miller Collection Opening
The Friends of the OSU Library would like to thank the faculty who helped make the opening of the Rudy Miller Art Collection on December 2 a success. The program, which was opened by Dean Sheila Grant Johnson, included remarks from Dr. Jim Shaw of the Zoology Department, Dr. Tony Echelle from Zoology and Dr. Mark White of the Art Department. Dr. Miller closed the program by thanking the attendees and taking questions from the audience.
Shaw said, "The Rudy Miller Collection is tangible proof that we still need naturalists today and will continue to need them tomorrow." Echelle said, "With his paintings and his book on the fishes of Oklahoma, Rudy is doing more than anyone else to educate the public to the diversity and beauty of fishes in our streams."
The collection, consisting of over 60 paintings by Professor Emeritus and artist Dr. Rudy Miller, will be on display in the Edmon Low Library on a rotating basis. The collection may be viewed in its entirety by appointment. Call 405-744-6311 for details.
According to the compromise agreed upon by the Library Administration, Faculty Council, and the Provost, peer-reviewed material available only in print will be returned to the Main Library based on decisions made in cooperation with departments using the material.
As of December 9, all requested titles from math, chemistry, physics and all departments in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources have been returned to the Main Library and are now on the shelves in call number order. We continue to work with the College of Engineering. Once all their requests are submitted, we will begin transferring those titles.
Please Note: As always, material in the Annex may be requested for electronic delivery, pick up at the Main Library or on-site consultation at the Annex by appointment. For more information visit http://www.library.okstate.edu/annex/index.htm
