- CALL TO ORDER
Lise Snyder called the meeting to order at 1:20 PM. Outgoing and incoming
members of the Board introduced themselves.
- CHAIRS REPORT
- Lise commemorated the conclusion of outgoing Past Chair
Marion Peters term on the LAUC-LA Executive Board with a tribute
to her accomplishments and other floral and epistolary gifts. Lise
also provided a homemade dessert.
- The LAUC Statewide Executive Board conducted its transitional
meeting in Oakland at the UC Office of the President on Friday, August
17; Lise, incoming LAUC-LA Chair Maureen Russell, and LAUC Vice President/President-elect
Esther Grassian attended. Among the projects on LAUC President Deborah
Murphys agenda for the coming year are the development of a
LAUC Web Advisory Group, establishment of a LAUC Statewide listserv,
and the compilation of an annual list of publications by UC librarians.
The 2002 LAUC Spring Assembly will be held next May at UCLA; the exact
date is yet to be confirmed.
- SECRETARYS REPORT
The minutes of the meeting of June 7th were approved, with corrections.
- NEW BUSINESS
- The formation of a Local Arrangements Committee for the
2002 LAUC Spring Assembly was discussed.
- Potential dates for the LAUC-LA Fall Membership Meeting
- The final 2000-2001 Lunch with LAUC-LA program
will take place Wednesday, September 12, from 11 AM to 1 PM in the
Hacienda Room of the Faculty Center. Speakers, drawn from the ranks
of the LAUC-LA membership, will answer the question, What Have
You Been Up to Lately? Projects and Research Sharing.
- The LAUC-LA Web site needs a page describing the LAUC-LA
Librarian of the Year Award. The current
page shows the names of the recipients, but it has no information
about the criteria for the award. Such information needs to be readily
available for the use of nominators. Maureen will follow up on this
matter with Web Administrator David Yamamoto.
- The Board considered LAUC-LAs potential advisory
role vis-à-vis the new UCLA Library Web page and the rapidly-developing
Electronic Resources Database (ERDb), both of which are
being fast-tracked for very early Fall Quarter implementation. Nearly
every Board member has spoken with colleagues who are either unaware
of, or considerably under-informed about, these projects. The Board
decided it would be best to arrange a Lunch with LAUC-LA
forum as soon as possible. Maureen Russell will send an e-mail message
immediately to Janice Koyama, Sharon Farb, and the members of the
Web Project Team (Dawn Setzer, Stephen Schwartz, and David Yamamoto)
inviting them to speak about the ERDb and the new Library Web page
before the LAUC-LA membership.
- For the final item of new business, the outgoing Executive
Board members withdrew, and the 2001/2002 LAUC-LA Executive Board
met in closed session to consider the composition of the 2001/2002
The transition meeting was adjourned at 3:15 PM.
