Library Committee Handbook

AP Promotion Implementation Team


To further refine and implement the proposed promotion program. The Academic Professional review and evaluation process for promotion should be conducted initially as a two-year (1/12/19) pilot program, with feedback collected and analyzed annually (1/12/2018) by the Assistant Dean for the BHRSC, working in conjunction with the University Librarian and LCAP, and adjustments made where necessary.

Academic Professional rank is established upon appointment in the Library.  For those who hold appointments at the start of this program, each Academic Professional role and the individual needs to be evaluated and placed at the appropriate promotional rank in the system.  The Library needs to identify a process to accomplish that, be it optional for each Academic Professional, or a comprehensive effort in the Library. The Implementation Team will be responsible for reviewing and categorizing current Academic Professionals at a rank in the framework that is commensurate with their current position description, and their resume documenting career experience, education and training pertinent to their professional role in the Library.  The Library may need to develop a specific resume template that allows for consistent listing of experience.
