reflected in February 1 paychecks. She encouraged everyone to
check to see that the change had been made. President Peltason's
memo of 1/11/95 calls for a 5% increase for faculty and staff.

Three recruitments are underway: Continental European History
Bibliographer, Infopath Services Director, and Assistant Head,

leadership role of the individual might need to be strengthened,
and that there was some ambiguity on the scope of the
individual's responsibility.

L. Abrams reported that the Committee has decided to supplement
librarians travel funds again this year; $70 for each librarian
is available.

6/23, 9/18/95.

a letter in support of the proposal, and the motion passed

6. CAPA Update

H. Colson reported that J. Hanson has sent out on e-mail the
guidelines developed for the current review cycle. CAPA will
monitor the process this year to see if it is successful.

7. Programs for future LAUC-SD Membership meetings

E. Kanter reported that UCR combines it's LAUC membership
business meetings with discussions on topics of general interest.
he asked if the LAUC-SD membership would be interested in similar
meetings. Concerns were expressed that if outside speakers were
invited, all staff should be able to attend.

It was decided that we would try the approach at a subsequent
meeting and see if it seemed worth continuing.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:45 p.m.
