Comm-LIS Report approved

Dec 20, 2008

The  Interim Report of the Communications Library and Information Science Services Team was approved pending amendments at the December 11 meeting of the Library Executive Committee (EC).  EC asked the Team to add the following to the report:
  1. The staffing needs of both LIS and Communications should be reassessed one year after implementation.
  2. Additional staff in Communications should support expanded hours and a staggered staffing model should be used for scheduling permanent staff.
The amended report should be available soon on the EC website.  EC also recommended that planning and implementation for Communication and LIS be decoupled henceforward.  An implementation report is expected from Communications as soon as possible and from LIS by late January.
