4. Question Time
The search committee for the Vet Met librarian was suggested. Beth W. will contact the members and ask them to serve.
Paula K. will come up with tips on how to recruit the best candidates. EC suggested that the Search Manual be sent out in draft form, because there are so many searches going on, we shouldn’t wait for the final form. EC also decided that it was not necessary to have the search committee chairs come to EC. It is slowing down the process.
EC talked about the Process for Review of the AUL for User Services position. EC search committee will ask for input from faculty and staff. They will then give their recommendation to Paula K., who will then make a decision.
The new AUL will be invited to an upcoming meeting to discuss the AUL/EC relationship.
