1. CALL TO ORDER
The meeting was called to order at 1:05 p.m.
2. SECRETARY’S REPORT
The minutes from June 3, 2003 were approved.
3. VICE-CHAIR’S REPORT
Ellen Broidy noted that four files are still outstanding and have not yet been received in Human Resources. The Board decided to discuss Peer Review later in the meeting with Janice Koyama.
4. CHAIR’S REPORT / ANNOUNCEMENTS
There will be a “Lunch with LAUC” to discuss the UC Collection Management Planning Group white papers on “developing a shared collection for the UCs” and “collection management and coordination.” SOPAG would like feedback from LAUC, and the purpose of the “Lunch with LAUC” on July 25 is to gather that feedback.
Position Paper #1, with proposed revisions by the LAUC Position Paper Task Force (following incorporation of the revisions proposed by the 2001/2002 LAUC Committee on Professional Governance and voted in by the 2003 LAUC Spring Assembly) is now up on the LAUC website, and comments are welcome until September.
Chuck Wilson will chair the Statewide AdHoc Awards Committee.
Michael Oppenheim and Ellen Broidy want to send out the call for next year’s LAUC-LA committee interest as soon as possible. Outgoing LAUC President Esther Grassian wants all divisions to have designated names for Statewide committees by the end of August.
The next Board meeting will be held August 19, 1-3 p.m.
The Program Committee has five possible dates for the LAUC breakfast with Gary Strong, and is in contact with LAO to get on his calendar.
5. COMMITTEE REPORTS
Committee on Library Plans and Policies – David Cappoli
David sent out the report on year-round instruction. It would be a strain on resources, staff.
Committee on Professional Governance – David Gilbert
The Committee removed references to the “distinguished” issue from the report. David will remind members to comment on the proposed Position Paper #1 revisions (see above) by September 5.
Committee on Research and Professional Development – Chuck Wilson
The Committee wrapped up all business.
6. NEW BUSINESS
“LAUC-LA ‘State of the Library’ White Paper” Task Force: Michael reported that the response to the call was underwhelming. In light of the upcoming Library reorganization, perhaps the timing is not right? Ellen thinks it’s a valuable exercise if we can get volunteers. The call for volunteers will be reissued, as part of the LAUC-LA Committee Interest form.
Ken Wade reported that the Statewide Committee on Rules will meet in person to discuss the bylaws relating to delegate selection.
7. JANICE KOYAMA
The Board brought up the Peer Review issue with Janice Koyama, to hold off review of files until all are in. Janice agreed to review all files in the same rank, Assistant, Associate and Full.
Re-organization and budget: Each consolidation has its own time-frame; some are more complex, each has a draft plan to flesh out and discuss. ExComm is trying to schedule an all-staff meeting the end of next week.
There will likely be mid-year cuts; UCLA expects the 04/05 cut to be about $16 million, about the same as this year.
Pat Hawthorne said that we eliminated 25.5 positions; we hope to have internal recruitment for PSMRL and Mellon conservator positions. The only positions we may advertise in the future are Chinese librarian, Arabic Cataloger and AUL for Science. The reality is that we will be working with a downsized workforce.
We asked for $1.1 million for Orion funding; we are not likely to hear until after a contract has been signed and we have more information about the state budget.
The meeting was adjourned at 3:10 p.m.
