1. Discussion with the Undergraduate Librarians and Lisa Hinchliffe re: the Undergraduate Instruction position

Lisa and the Undergraduate Librarians discussed the role of instruction coordinator in Undergrad and the types of needs they can fill. We discussed the program goals of the instruction program.

 

Some of the components of this position might be to create web tutorials, conduct hands-on sessions, and most importantly, to articulate a learning philosophy. EC recommended that the job description reflect the scope of the formal instruction program.

 

After discussion, EC recommended faculty to serve on a search committee and Paula will ask them to serve.

The minutes were approved.

 

3. Question Time

Dana Wright will stay at the February 23 meeting to discuss the Latina/o Report.

Kim will resend the Diversity Committee proposal to all of EC since it was sent several months ago and EC has new members.

EC was curious about the various components of the library budget and Rod Allen will be invited to an EC meeting to talk about it and give an update.

CITES has sent email letting users know they will be charged for going over their allotted quota of disk space. Lynn will send Paula a copy of the email so she can follow up with

Beth Sandore.

 

 

4. Assignment of paper preparer and peer review committee for a faculty member who wishes to be promoted to full professor.
