Barbara reported that the goal for the session is to provide support to librarians preparing their self-review, and to make the process as easy as possible.

Kari and Barbara also reported that during their preparation for the workshop they had come across a number of discrepancies between the Academic Review Procedures Manual (ARPM) and the Academic Personnel Manual (APM).  They collected these discrepancies in a document for review.  The executive board briefly reviewed this document, and decided to forward this document to CAPA for discussion.

5)     Chairs meeting with Brian Schottlaender: Peter Brueggeman and Sam Dunlap met with University Librarian Brian Schottlaender.  They discussed the following:

·        Mentoring program: Brian’s commented that the proposal needed language that specified that the program would involve current UCSD Library staff as the mentees and UCSD librarians as the mentors. Upon review, the Executive Board felt that this was explicit in the document as written.  Brian stated he would pass the document on to Maureen Harden for review

·        Peer-to-Peer document: Brian felt this document was very helpful, and would use this document as opportunity arises with Tony Wood and others

·        Professional development funding increase: Brian is interested in hearing a number what it would cost to fully support professional development needs
