that the student body as a whole is
being taken advantage of by li
brary in regards to the Venda Card
system. First, the students are un
aware of this system. Second, we are
being charged 10 cents per copy, of

to use this system. (At University
Park, student are charged 6 cents per
copy). And third, the library makes
no real attempt to supply the average
student the opportunity to buy Venda

rent Venda Card system.”
The Resolution will be sent after the
next meeting.
