1. Approve minutes from September 8
Minutes were approved with changes.
2. Question Time
Paula has asked the AULs to attend a future EC meeting to talk about the upcoming faculty retreat and to discuss a possible coordinator for research position and how it might overlap with their positions.
3. 2:30pm - Kathleen Kern, Paula Carns - Reference NSM
It was suggested that Map and Geography Library be added into the report. The report will be discussed at the next faculty meeting. EC asked for a diagram that shows the relationship of the different positions and how they will work together.
4. Digital Content Life Cycle Recommendations
The committee discussed the report and recommends accepting it.
5. Replace a PRC member
A new faculty member was recommended.
6. User Experience Librarian
EC has asked UGL to do an inventory of people who are working in the areas identified in the position request. EC felt the job description could be broadened to encompass library wide services, perhaps in collaboration with the Library Assessment Working Group (LAWG) and the request resubmitted in the spring when EC does a call for positions. It was also suggested that Jim Hahn might want to form a User Experience Research and Assessment Working Group.
7. IT Restructuring Discussion
The report will be posted to the EC website for input. EC will discuss it at a future meeting.
8. Review Committees
EC began the process of reviewing committees. Barbara Ford recommended that the Mortenson Advisory Committee be disbanded. EC agreed that this would be the last year for the committee.
