2.   Question Time
 
The University Library has expressed interest in participating in the HathiTrust print monographic storage effort. The repository is expected to have a distributed model of retention. Monographic material at Oak Street may be prime candidates for inclusion.

Informal Council of Deans meetings (i.e., those interspersed with the COD meetings with a formal agenda) are reflecting more issues relevant specifically to the deans. The next meeting will discuss faculty retention, so EC engaged in a discussion regarding equity issues.

Budget cuts for this fiscal year are moving forward as expected based on our budget document. Nothing is yet known about budget or potential cuts for the next fiscal year. Current campus deficits beyond the reductions taken will be handled with managed debt.
 
3.   Recommendations for AP promotion framework – Revised
 
Revised draft was discussed and will be sent to Libnews for further discussion, comment, and use in upcoming forums. Revised draft was approved for distribution by a motion by Lori Mestre, seconded by Nancy O’Brien.

Draft will be sent out for review and comment.
