Minutes were approved with changes.

 

2.   Question Time

      A personnel issue was discussed.

 

3.   New Service Model proposals (continuation of discussion)

The Committee continued discussion of the NSM. The Budget Group + is continuing to meet, and has been talking with individuals whose areas will be affected by some of the proposals. The BG+ should have something more complete for the Executive Committee to look at by the end of the week. It was noted that an “e-science” proposal is to follow.

 

4.   Proposed GA evaluation policy

      The policy will be sent back to Scott Walter with comments from the Committee.

 

5.   Developing better mechanisms for sabbatical coverage

      Chris Prom will work on a policy for coverage for sabbatical leaves.

7.   Creating "Clinical Librarians"

      After discussion, the Committee decided not to pursue this matter further.

 

8.   Committee on Scholarly Communication

      This item was deferred to a later meeting.

 

9.   Nine-month library appointments

      Campus policy dictates that a nine-month appointment must be from August 16-May 15. The Committee sees no initial problem with faculty working a nine-month appointment as long as the area they are in is able to continue to operate effectively.
