Administrative history

The Senate of Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, was created in 1966 when Mount Saint Vincent College became Mount Saint Vincent University under Bill 85, granting the University a Charter. Some of the Committees that are now standing committees of Senate do predate Senate, such as the Student Affairs Committee and the Committee on Academic Policy and Planning. The Senate is responsible for the academic policy of the University and regulates the academic programs of the University. The size and membership of the Senate, and the terms of office of its members, are determined by the by-laws of the Senate, subject to Section 8 of the University Charter. Voting members are the President; the Academic Vice-president of the University; the Administrative Vice-president of the University; the Deans; the University Librarian; the Registrar; faculty members elected by the faculty; students elected by the students and such other persons as the Senate from time to time determines. The Chair of Senate is the University President. Senate meets on the last Monday of each month throughout the University session. These meetings are generally open to the University community, subject to limitations including special considerations of confidentiality. All Senate standing and ad-hoc committees report directly to Senate.

The Committee meets no less than four times per year, and consists of the University Librarian or Assistant Vice-President; a professional librarian, six members of faculty, three from each division, and two students to be named by Student Council. Chairs of the Committee have included Sister A. M. Westwater (1977 -1978). Recording secretaries have included Annette Pothier (1977), Lynn A. Kelley (1977) and Carolyn Scanlan (1980-1981).

Series forms part of the Mount Saint Vincent University Senate fonds and consists of minutes of meetings of the Library Committee (1975-2003) generated by the functions of the Library Committee which include advising the University Librarian/Assistant Vice President and Senate on priorities and policies regarding library resources and services at the University, and on matters pertaining to departmental library allocations. The Committee also considers other matters that have a bearing on the teaching and research support provided by the Library.
