5. Issues for Consideration for 1997/98
6. Distinguished Librarian Award
J. Sherlock met with G. Bynon and M. Sharrow and concluded that the Distinguished Librarian Award proposal is not fully settled. G. Bynon raised the issues of whether LAUC funds can be used for an award or must be used only for administrative purposes and also that funds coming through the General Library's budget (which LAUC funds do) should not be awarded to a non-General Library librarian. M. Sharrow volunteered to request funds directly from the librarian's library when a non-General Library person is selected to receive the award. R. Davis will continue negotiating with the Administration to identify a procedure which is acceptable to all.
7. Fall Assembly
D. Lundquist has reserved two rooms at the Alummni Center for Nov. 20 and 21. G. Nichols has volunteered to handle registration. R. Rocke, L. Yamamoto, and P. Wang have also volunteered to help with the Assembly. Food service and transportation will need to be planned. LAUC Statewide board is interested in possibly having a panel discussion on scholarly publication on the program.
8. Meeting Schedule for Executive Board
The future meeting schedule will be set at the next board meeting.
The meeting concluded with a motion expressing appreciation to J. Sherlock for the excellent job he has done as this year's Chair.
