  1.  CAMELS Update – Sandy Wolf (see attached report)Sandy gave an update as to what the CAMELS have been doing this past year. The biggest change is that they are no longer offering emergency support for the Divisions. This gives them more time to help with cyclical needs throughout the Library. They worked the largest number of hours in the Media and Reserve Center.
  2. Budget Update – Rod Allen, Paula Kaufman (see attached documents)Rod discussed the budget for the next fiscal year and relayed the Executive Committees priorities.
  3. TOP Program – Paula KaufmanPaula explained the way the TOP program works and how important it is to the Library to be looking for candidates within and without.

    TOP is explained in the Provost’s Communication 4. The program is designed to support the recruitment of outstanding faculty members among groups that are underrepresented in units on campus. These include African-Americans, Latinos/Latinas, and Native Americans. If the recruitment is approved and ultimately proves successful, the salary for the new faculty member is furnished fully by the campus for the duration of that member’s appointment. If the faculty member stays for more than three years we get retain the salary line. If they leave before that, the salary line goes back to campus. In the last few years we have hired five TOP faculty members.

    Paula encourages all units to stay alert to these opportunities.

  4. Union Negotiations – Bob Burger698 has been in negotiations since September 2005. They have reached an impasse over monetary issues. They’ve hired a federal mediator to help with this. There is always the chance that 698 and the University won’t be able to resolve this and that could lead to a strike. 698 has to give ten days notice if they are going to strike. If you have any questions, please call Library Human Resources.
  5. Clean-up Day – Paula KaufmanPaula and Bob will look for a date to have another Library Clean-up Day, as it was successful last year.
  6. Announcements and UpdatesTina Chrzastowski – Chemistry will be moving to 170 Noyes Lab between June 28 and July 19.
