A personnel issue was discussed.
Approved with changes.
Paula has met with Deans DeBrock and Gallagher and the affected librarians to discuss EC's recommendations regarding the NSM plans for BEL and AHS.
New guidelines for AUL annual reports were confirmed and a due date set.
The importance of confidentiality in EC discussions was re-emphasized.
AULs need to provide input on hiring plans and developing new position requests. New positions will need to fit within the goals that will be outlined in the new strategic plan. Their input will also be important in identifying goals in the post-NSM environment.
Internal and external evaluators were selected for candidates going up for promotion.
Greg recommended the description for this position be revised. He will work with Tom Teper and the Health Sciences Working Group on a revision.
EC recommends initiating an internal search for the Head of the combined libraries. This will be a 5-year appointment with review. It was also recommended that the Head serve as the Chair of the NSM Planning Team for the Social and Applied Health Sciences Libraries. A draft charge should be available at the next meeting.
The zero-time appointment as instructor was recommended.
The positions submitted for the hiring plan were reviewed and prioritized
