Committee on Library Plans and Policies – David Cappoli
The Committee will meet to discuss the impact of full-year instruction on the Library.
6. NEW BUSINESS
Ken Wade summarized some of the details of the LAUC Statewide Assembly, held May 30th at UC San Diego. Highlights from the meeting include:
LAUC will try to plan future Assemblies more in terms of cost savings, by such means as divisions sharing the planning workload, and holding the event at more “airport-friendly” campuses.
Committee reports included proposed bylaws revisions, impact of year-round schedules, the just-formed LAUC Position Paper Task Force. Statewide research grants went to UCLA’s David Hirsch, Gia Aivazian, and William Benemann (UC Berkeley).
Position Paper #1 revisions: all campuses have concerns. UCLA focused on the “distinguished” issue, others did not discuss it. The Assembly voted to approve the changes recommended by the 2001/02 LAUC Committee on Professional Governance, and the document is going to the Position Paper Task Force on a fast track for further proposed revisions, which will be placed before the LAUC membership.
Myron Okada had no definite news on the budget, but said that merit increases for academic staff will go through. He also mentioned that there is a new UCOP task force investigating implementation of a faculty code of conduct, and that the START program may begin soon.
University Librarians’ session: the panel consisted of Tom Leonard (UCB), Brian Schottlaender (UCSD), and Gerry Munoff (UCI). The ULs discussed shared collections; shared facilities; the RLFs; and their collective relationship with LAUC.
The next Board meeting will be held Tuesday, July 15. The meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m.
