1. NSF SITE VISIT COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS RENEWAL
A NSF site visit committee was at the SRC May 16-18
to review the SRC and make recommendations for the
next 5-year renewal period of NSF funding. In its
report the committee strongly endorses a renewal of
the SRC funding, summarizing its findings as follows:
"In summary, the committee believes that the SRC should
continue to be funded, and at the requested increased
funding levels, in order to continue to fulfill its role
as a critical resource for both the Midwest and the U.S.
as a whole in the area of UV/VUV synchrotron radiation."
The NSF will make its decision in late September.
The SRC would like to thank all the Users and staff
members who have helped making the site visit a success.
