APPOINTMENT OF A DEAN OF COI-LEGE OF LIBRARY SCIENCE


Recommendation: that Dr. Timothy W. Sineath be appointed Professor
of Library Science, with tenure, and Dean of the College of Library
Science, effective July 1, 1977.

Background: Following the announcement of Dean Lawrence Allen of
his desire to be relieved of his duties of Dean of the College of Library
Science, a Search Committee was appointed in accordance with the
Governing and Administrative Regulations to recommend on a replace-
ment. The vacancy was advertised nationally on two occasions and a
large number of candidates were evaluated by the Committee. These
evaluations actually occurred in two periods, during the past winter
and the late summer, and involved bringing a total of seven external
candidates to the campus for interviews. Dr. Sineath was recommended
by the Search Committee for this position.

Dr. Sineath received the B. A. degree in History from Florida State
University in 1962 and the M. S degree in Library Science from the
same institution in 1963. He was awarded the Ph. D. in Library Science
by the University of Illinois in 1970. He has had experience as university
librarian at the University of Georgia and served as Academic Coordinator
of Extension in Library Science at the University of Illinois. Since 1970,
he has been on the faculty of the School of Library Science at Simmons
College where in addition to his teaching responsibilities, he has served
as Coordinator of the Doctoral Program and of the Continuing Education
Program.

Dr. Sineath brings to this position a combination of academic experience
and professional librarian experience which makes him eminently quali-
fied for this leadership role.

           CREATION OF THE POSITION AND APPOINTMENT OF
                   A DEPUTY DIRECTOR - INSTITUTE
                 FOR MINING AND MINERALS RESEARCH


Recommendation: (1) that the position of Deputy Director, Institute for
Mining and Minerals Research (IMMR) be created; and, that Dr. L. E.
Brecher be appointed to the position of Deputy Director, IMMR, effective
1 October 1976.


Background: The research program of the Institute for Mining and Minerals
Research (IMMR) is directed toward research and development in the broad
areas of mining, process development and evaluation, geology and identi-
fication of reserves, and materials physico-chemical analysis. The
program objectives include professional technical man power develop-
ment, and economic analyses. While the charter of IMMR includes all
minerals and their use, the present emphasis is almost wholly on coal
and its transformation and use. The current and projected growth of
IMMR and its location off-campus indicates the need for a position of
Deputy Director.

       Dr. L. E. Brecher received a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering
from the University of Illinois in 1965, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees
from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1966 and 1967 respectively. He
then joined the Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Research and Develop-
ment Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he has had consulting and
project leadership experience in nuclear and fossil energy systems
research and development. Dr. Brecher has a number of patents to his
credit, and has published a number of technical papers on a variety of
subjects.

       This appointment will further strengthen the program in IMMR.

       APPROVAL OF CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT

Recommendation: that the Board approve for submission to the Council
on Public Higher Education the installation of a clean room, Pharmacy
Building.

Background: The College of Pharmacy is presently deficient in suitable
facilities for the education of students in the proper technique for pre-
paring dosage forms intended for injection into the body. This project
will provide the proper facility for this instruction and will also enable
certain research and development projects involving sterile techniques
to be carried out. The installation will provide laboratory facilities for
a course in Sterile Products Technology. Estimated cost of the project
is $116, 100, and it will be funded from Physical Plant Funds as budgeted
in the 1976-77 operating budget.

   increase in fund balances.
