2.                 Question Time

EC will meet with the AULs when it next meets and will discuss the email Scott Walter sent out regarding the joint working group on service expectations, Advisory Committee to the Associate University Librarian for Services and the Collection Development Committee.


Paula commented on the budget. There is nothing definite yet, but early indications from campus are that next year's budget will be no better than this year's.


David asked if any EC members would be willing to take notes during the Faculty Retreat on Thursday.


Bill was asked by another faculty member if the EC members who are also members of the Reference Services NSM Team recuse themselves from those discussions. EC discussed this and felt input was important and felt recusal was not necessary.


3.                 Emeritus Status

EC talked about upcoming retirements. Appointments to emeritus status cannot move forward until each division makes a case for their retiring faculty and sends the request to Paula or EC.


4.                 Reference NSM Implementation Team

EC discussed the report and the comments received at length and accepted the report. JoAnn and Karen will draft a charge for the implementation team and bring it to a future meeting. EC discussed possible membership for the Implementation Team.
