One Dartmouth, a group for College organization leaders founded last Spring term 1998, will host its first campus-wide event this Saturday. James Gallo '99, Rachel Gilliar '98 and Marene Jennings '98 founded the group to counteract what they saw as poor communication among student organizations at the College. "There are numerous explanations [for founding One Dartmouth], but a primary reason is that many organizational leaders do not know each other," Gallo said. "The purpose of One Dartmouth is to increase communication and interaction among Dartmouth leaders and organizations that do not normally work together," Gallo said. Dean of Student Life Holly Sateia advises One Dartmouth, which includes leaders from campus organizations such as the Tucker Foundation, Native Americans at Dartmouth, Panhellenic Council, the Afro-American Society, Alianza Latina, Student Assembly, Palaeopitus and the Programming Board. One Dartmouth plans to meet twice a term to discuss the challenges College organizations face, promote leadership development, coordinate programming, encourage organizations to work together pro-actively and allow leaders to interact.
About 130,000 volumes will be moved next month from the Baker stacks to the Storage Library, as construction of the Berry Library continues. Construction in the stacks began last summer and will progress gradually until 2000. Volumes will be moved into the Storage Library on Route 120, about two miles from campus, by the same professional team that will move the Special Collections to Rauner Library, Circulation Services Librarian Pamela Ploeger said. Ploeger said Circulation Services has selected books for storage with the goal of minimizing the impact on students.
