BUSINESS

1. Nominating Committee report - Elliot indicated that four
people have volunteered to run for CAPA seats, one for Vice
Chair. Karen will make an announcement after the elections for
volunteers for the Webmaster position and the Archives Task
Force.

2. Career Day - There are eight volunteers for this event, three
from Biomed. Karen will select the first five received.

3. Email policy - The group briefly discussed UC's email policy
and noticed nothing to be concerned about. Karen will ask for
further comments at the membership meeting.

4. Distance Learning Task Force - Karen will double check with
Reinhart (our representative to the group) on their mission and
what the campuses should be doing. Another representative
{Firestein?} of the group will be present at the Assembly to
contact as well.

5. Substitute librarians - The statewide Committee on
Professional Governance drafted a policy for establishing a pool
of possible candidates (e.g. retired librarians) to fill short-
term positions. These positions are distinct from temporary
positions which have a cumulative term limit of two years. Tammy
asked if these substitute librarians could be used to fill in for
librarians working on LAUC research grants.
