1. Interview two UGL Acting Head candidates
The candidates came and discussed their visions and answered questions. Paula will meet with the Division Coordinator (Betsy Kruger) and with Rod Allen to gather additional input. Paula will report back to EC so that EC can consider these comments in its deliberations before making a recommendation.
2. Approval of the February 6 Minutes
Minutes were approved.
3. Discuss Moratorium on filling positions
Paula will check with Rod Allen to see what flexibility we have in funding new and vacated positions and will report back to the Committee. Aside from the question of whether funding is available to fill vacated positions, several EC members noted that a temporary moratorium would be advisable until the Library has articulated priorities as part of our strategic planning process.
