Items you'd like brought to the Statewide Exec. Board meeting on 8/16

  • P. Manaka, UC Irvine, requested that the LAUC divisions address a report from UC Berkeley which states that although librarians are academic employees, they are not members of the Academic Senate and therefore, don't have a voice in the governance of the university. Each campus is to review the report and provide feedback.
  • Information Literacy concept, what are the next steps?
  • What were the results of the Distinguished Step survey?

Agenda building for Transition meeting on 8/27

  • Checkbook balance
  • Status of LAUC Office
  • Buddy responsibilities, and several new librarians need buddies
  • Review of committee volunteers and appointments
  • Schedule membership and Executive Board meetings for next year (A. Perez volunteered to compile conference dates so as not to conflict with new meetings.)

Statewide results
Two members asked if the statewide results had been sent out. J. Reiswig will double-check.
