Item 256 #1c

Education: Other
The Library of Virginia

Page 192, line 42, before "It", insert "A."
Page 192, after line 45, insert:
"B. The Library of Virginia shall, with due diligence and dispatch, make such operating adjustments as are necessary and prudent to provide proper care for the Library’s records and collections, having regard for the capacities and limitations of the Library building’s physical plant.  Such adjustments may include, but need not be limited to, relocating materials on and among floors of the building or elsewhere, including without limitation the Library’s Records Center, and redeploying and adjusting staff work areas and conditions.  The operating plans to accomplish any changes, as well as the implementation of such plans, shall be reported to the Secretaries of Education and Administration no later than August 1, 2004.”

(This amendment requires the Library of Virginia, working with the Secretaries of Administration and Education, to resolve the environmental control issues at the Library of Virginia building. These environmental control issues are potentially due to design and construction flaws in the building, which is currently the subject of negotiations between the adminisration and the architects, engineers and contractors. Changes in operating practices can mitigate the impact of these dificulties pending resolution of the design and construction questions. A related amendment is found at Item 58 #1c. )
