3. CHAIR’S REPORT
Senate Committee on the Library Meeting, 10/01/02
Michael Oppenheim and Cindy Shelton attended; Allison Bunting was unable to attend. The Committee welcomed guests to speak on their areas of expertise; there was an open feeling to the group, and Michael Oppenheim had many opportunities to contribute his ideas. The Committee has nine members; Abdelmonem Afifi, Dean Emeritus of the School of Public Health, is the Chair. The Committee meets twice each quarter; the next meeting is November 26.
The Committee ranked library issues they plan to address this year in their order of importance: University Librarian search; library funding; role of the library in terms of the balance between print and electronic resources; collection management and development; Orion2 and its successor.
The group discussed the latest ARL rankings; UCLA moved up to 7th place, based on variables of staff and funding. In relation to this topic, Ellen Broidy brought up David Gilbert’s earlier discussion of the Music Library facility, and asked if the Committee members intend to advocate for funding not just for collections but also for facilities. Michael responded that the Committee does intend to advocate for these funds. Library facilities figure prominently in UCLA’s current capital campaign.
4. VICE-CHAIR’S REPORT
The Committee on Peer Review will meet October 30 for orientation. There are forty-two members this year. It may be an issue that some members are signing up for the Committee but are not participating enough. Michael Oppenheim will query previous Peer Review Coordinators for their input.
