In regards to future requests for filling positions, the Provost has conveyed that she will not approve many permanent positions. She will, however, consider requests for visiting positions.

 

The committee discussed a personnel issue.

 

3.    Digital Life Cycle Management Report

This will be discussed at the next meeting.

 

4.    Staff Development and Training Coordinator Position

The committee discussed the importance of retaining this position. They would like to see a job description for the position if it were made full-time. Paula will ask Scott Walter to provide the document. At the very least, the Committee would like to continue with a ½ time position with possibly staff assistance.

 

5.    Scholarly Commons Coordinator Position

This will be discussed at the next meeting.

 

6.    Titles of Faculty Positions

The committee will get a list of all the different titles used for faculty. Karen Hogenboom and Chris Prom will work on the principles for using different titles in the Library.

 

7.    Academic Professionals as Heads of Units

It was determined that there will be instances where Academic Professionals  might be in charge of head units with faculty and that shouldn't pose a problem.

 

8.   Faculty Appointments Versus Academic Appointments

John Wagstaff and Greg Youngen will revisit the policy to make sure it is clear.

The Committee approved this visiting appointment that will lead a team to eliminate the backlog of children's literature monographs that are being sent from Press Building to Oak Street.
