2. Question Time
Paula is speaking to the Library Senate Committee today regarding the fact that our ranking will drop from the 3 rd largest research library over the next few years. She will discuss what possible additional criteria may be used in the future to rank libraries.
The Library has been accepted as a contributor to the Open Content Alliance. Steve Rugg has agreed to provide funding in the amount of $200,000 to be matched by the Library. This money will be used for digitization and to ready the 3 rd Floor Oak Street facility for this work.
3. Assignment of External and Internal reviewers for P and T candidates
Assignments were made for most candidates. For a few cases, EC members will research the specific suitability of reviewers to the candidates and make the final assignments at the April 5 meeting.
4. Committee to review Turyn Professorship applications
Paula Kaufman and Tim Cole, from EC, will serve on the review committee. Several other names were suggested and Paula will contact the individuals to see if they are willing to serve.
