1.                   1:30-2:00 – Academic Searches and PAPE Approval – Tom Teper, Donna Hoffman, Skye Arseneau
The group discussed the differences between Academic Professionals (AP) and Civil Service (CS), what was involved in the paperwork to hire each of the classifications and how the different classifications work in the Library.
It was determined that when the search committees have finished with  job descriptions for an AP position, Skye Arseneau and Donna Hoffman will look at the descriptions and determine if they are truly AP positions as written or if they fall under the specifications for Civil Service. Once it’s determined that the positions are APs, they will then be sent to EC for approval. This is a change from the previous procedure.
