Title

Memo from Austin E. Grigg to George M. Modlin

Description

This is an August 2, 1968 memorandum from Austin E. Grigg, Dean of Richmond College. The memo is addressed to President George Modlin and CC’s Provost Smart. Grigg writes this memo after the joint meeting at University Center designed to facilitate a new cooperative program between Randolph Macon, Virginia Union, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the University of Richmond. This proposal was designed to work within Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Dean Grigg discusses the necessary inclusion of the university Librarians prior to any cooperative library projects conception. The benefits of such cooperation could be significant, particularly through the sharing of certain high tech, and high cost, materials like an IBM computer for example. Grigg asserts that this could be a very good program for the University of Richmond to be a part of, and reminds President Modlin of the October 1st deadline all schools were requested to decide by.
