The entire two-year project will
conclude in spring 1995.
The third and fourth floors will
become the new Science Library.
Several departmental libraries cur-
rently scattered around campus will
be consolidated at the UGLi. The
chemistry, natural science, physics
and mathematics libraries will all be
moved to the UGLi in the future.
"It's good they're expanding the
library - making it a lot larger and
introducing new assets and different
things to the library," Horne said.
"Maybe it won't be so difficult to
locate books if they're not in all dif-
ferent places around campus,"
Zuschlag said. "It would be nice to do
my American culture reading and go
right around the corner to do my phi-
losophy reading."

The UGLi renovation will cost
$10 million.
"I know it's ungodly expensive
and it seems like they could use that
money to give us more access to pro-
fessors instead of a facelift for the
building," Zuschlag said.
"It probably won'tbe quite as ugly
as it was before, and that's a benefit in
one way or another," she added.
In the absence of any structural
damage to the building, Zuschlag said
the project seemed like a waste.
"The building was due for a major
renovation," MacAdam said. "It's
over 30 years old."
MacAdam said more space had to
be added to the building to be able to
consolidate departmental libraries.'
The University worked with ar-
chitects and interior designers in plan-
ning the renovation, using input from
student UGLi employees and the
library's suggestion box.

Nordby's office reviewed all per-
sonnel search for high-ranking ad-
ministrators and deans. It was the
Affirmative Action office's job to
look at the pool of candidates, check
the qualifications to ensure that they

were legitimate candidates and en-
sure that a fair search process was
being followed.
But Nordby, a veteran of two presi-
dential searches, said this process was
much different.
"That practice wasn't followed in
these two presidential searches,"
Nordby said. In fact, she like all ad-
ministrators, never saw the list of
"I was kind of in the dark."
Regents' Bylaw 13.14requires the
Office of Affirmative Action to "...
administer and monitor the Univer-
sity policies of nondiscrimination and
affirmative action."
Nordby's ability to monitor the
search was hampered by her limited
access to search records. She never
saw any names of candidates - only
sheer numbers.
But one faculty advisory commit-
tee members, said Nordby's approval
was little more than a rubber stamp.
"They didn't expect anyone to get
the names and so it was only impor-
tant that a couple of women and mi-
norities be 'considered."'
Nordby says she approved the

with welfare reforms

Clinton finalizing
welfare-reform plan,
still seeking funding
WASHINGTON -With a self-
imposed spring deadline looming,
President Clinton is putting the final
touches on legislation aimed at ful-
filling his popular campaign promise
to overhaul the welfare system - but
he still hasn't figured out how to pay
for the plan.
At a two-hour session last week,
Clinton and his Cabinet wrestled with
the unappealing possibilities of fi-
nancing the proposal by imposing a
federal tax on gambling or by slash-
ing some benefits for the poor, a move
critics charge would swell the ranks
of foster children and the homeless.
And the administration's welfare
task force has been forced to shrink
Clinton's ambitious original scheme
- he had pledged to "end welfare as
we know it" - in favor of a less
costly program that by the end of the
century will have pushed fewer than 3
percent of adult welfare recipients off
the rolls and into jobs.
Even so, some analysts say the
plan could amount to a fundamental
shift in welfare policy.
"There should be no doubt that the
Clinton administration has already had
a pretty profound effect on the nature
of the debate," said Gary Burtless, a
senior fellow at the Washington-based
Brookings Institution who has stud-
ied welfare.
"We do think it offers the real
promise of ending welfare as we know

it, of moving people from welfare to
work," Clinton told reporters at a news
conference Thursday night. "But I
have made no decision on the financ-
ing of welfare reform. I can tell you
this: It's a tough issue because we
have to pay for anything we do."
In an effort to break the cycle of
dependency that critics say welfare
has fostered, the Clinton plan would:
Push welfare recipients off the
rolls after two years, forcing them to
get jobs in the private sector or accept
government-subsidized jobs. Child-
care and job-training programs would
be expanded to help. But only those
born after 1972 would be affected. .
Intensify government efforts to
establish paternity and collect child
support for children born out of wed-.
lock. To prevent welfare from pro-
viding an incentive for teen-age ille-
gitimacy, mothers under 18 years of
age would be required to live with
their parents or other responsible
adults to receive benefits.
Allow states more flexibility toO
experiment, probably including a pro-
vision that would permit them to cap
additional aid for mothers who bear
children while receiving welfare. New
Jersey last year received a federal
waiver to try that.
Other provisions of the White
House plan are now being reconsid-
ered as the administration tries to re-
duce the cost of its package, officials
said. They include: $5 billion to pro-@
vide child care for the working poor,
$550 million to guarantee child sup-
port payments, and $390 million to,
help the unemployed fathers of chil-
dren on welfare get jobs.

A comparatively low-tech prob-

puter network to its knees over the
weekend, disabling popular services
such as the Michigan Terminal Sys-

versity mainframes and servers at
about 7:30 p.m. Saturday to prevent
Backup cooling systems were run-
ning by mid-afternoon yesterday, and
network services were coming back
on-line throughout the evening.
Vice Provost for Information
Technology Douglas Van Houweling
said this is the first system failure of
this magnitude in several years.
"Even when you've got all that
backup, once in a while you still get a
problem like this," he said.
University libraries processed
book checkouts by hand late Saturday
and much of yesterday.
LSA senior Brent Novak, who.
works at the Graduate Library circu-
lation desk, said the largest problem,
however, has been the loss of the
MIRLYN service.
"It's hurt people who are looking
for books, because they have to use
the card catalog, which hasn't been

updated since 1988," Novak said.
At the Union computing center;,
students complained of the inconve-
nience of losing e-mail services.
LSA junior Brian Ambrose said
he tried three times Saturday and yes-
terday tosign on to MTS, but was
unsuccessful each time.
"I had to do a computer confer-,
ence for an English class.... It's amaz-
ing; I don't live in a residence hall,
and I have to schlep out to a comput-
ing center, and it wastes time I don't
By about 8 p.m. yesterday, most
network services were functioning,
with the exception of access to the
Merit network for some users.
"MTS is back up, clearly, and it
looks as if we may have a problem
with some of the 'Merit' host proces-
sors," Van Houweling said at the time.
"It's probably changing hour-to-
hour as we get things working," he
