2.    Questions

After discussions with the Provost about the final draft of the Action Plan, which was reviewed and discussed by the Executive Committee earlier this month, it was decided to replace the Action Plan with a broader report on the New Service Models program.

The New Service Models Report will provide contextual material about the program, a summary of major NSM projects approved and/or implemented to date, and a preview of major NSM projects proposed for the coming year. The report will also introduce our proposals to form teams to develop plans for reconfiguring services in the areas identified. These plans will be based on broad consultation within the Library and with our colleagues on campus.

The new Service Models Report should be ready for review within the week. The Executive Committee and Paula will seek feedback at a meeting for Library faculty and staff on June 17, 10-11 AM, in 66 Library. Written input will also be invited. Simultaneously, the report will be shared and discussed with the Senate Committee on the Library.

Following the June 17th meeting, the report will be made available widely for campus input. The report will be submitted to the Provost no later than June 29.

 

Lori Mestre has been offered the position of Head, Undergraduate Library and she has accepted.

 

Are the AUL evaluations completed? The committee will have all input to Paula by the end of the week.
