Jeremy VanDerKern suggested that the four Fitzwilliam history VHS tapes could be copied to DVDs. The trustees authorized him to do so at a cost of $5 per DVD.

Nick would like us to review the number of people reading each magazine title as we consider renewing subscriptions. We will explore ways to do this. Kate suggested that we begin checking out current issues of magazines for two days. The Trustees agreed.
