1.         Call to Order

The meeting was called to order by Karleen Darr at 10:07 a.m.

 

2.         Minutes of the previous meeting

Barbara offered a correction to item 4a to add “in compliance with the bylaws of the Statewide Committee.”  The minutes were approved as corrected.

 

3.         LAUC Representative to RAC for AUL Administrative Services

Names to be submitted to Marilyn Sharrow:  Marcia Meister, Bob Heyer-Gray, Dan Goldstein, Carolyn Kopper

 

4.         Manager, Access Services Department

The vacancy listing for this position shows that it is in the Management Series and not in the Librarian Series.  Unofficially, the idea is that the applicant pool will be broader since it won’t require an MLS and the change in series allows for a higher salary range to be offered.  There was some feeling that LAUC would have wanted the chance to provide input into this decision.  Also, if the problem is with the salary in the Librarian Series, then that should be addressed directly instead of removing positions from the Series which potentially happen in the future with other department head vacancies.  Karleen will draft a letter to Marilyn outlining our concerns.  This letter will also be shared with the entire membership.

 

5.         Ad Hoc Committee on Instructional Roles Report (any additional comments)

The Board reviewed the recommendations finding agreement with numbers one and two.  It’s difficult to support number three as we’re not sure of the survey’s usefulness and what we hope to get out of it.  The recording of contacts and interpretation of statistics on a statewide level as mentioned in number 4 are problematic and cumbersome but we do support the idea of a clearinghouse of instructional materials possibly in combination with CDL materials

 

6.         Spring Assembly

No agenda has been sent out yet. 

 

7.         Committee Reports

Program: There will be a presentation on wikipedia in the afternoon of June 9.

CAPA: A package on a temporary appointment was reviewed in less than one day.

Research: The Committee expects to spend all of its money this year largely due to the fact that eligibility was opened up to provide money for those attending conferences to present papers.  The Statewide Research Committee sent three recommendations to Myron Okada, Director of Academic Personnel at UCOP, who approved all three (total of $13422).

 

8.         Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned at 11:25.
