B. E. Byrne and G. Handman discussed their recent meeting with M. Teitz. E.
Byrne announced she had drafted a letter to M. Teitz (Academic Senate Chair)
outlining the benefits of Librarian representation on Faculty Senate
C. A. Youmans, new CAPA Chair and ex-officio member of LAUC-B, was welcomed.
A. Guidelines for Extension of the Timetable. The latest draft of the
guidelines was discussed and approved with minor revisions. The draft will be
submitted to D. Gregor and The Vice Chancellor for approval and ultimate
incorporation into the Berkeley Guidelines to the APM. It is hoped that the
guidelines will also be distributed as a separate document to all LAUC-B
members with dates specific to the 1992/93 review cycle, i.e. including the
final deadlines for submission of documentation: February 15 (promotion) and
March 19 (merit).
B. Management Options - G. Handman gave a short history and synopsis of the
issues and events leading to the constitution of the LAUC Statewide Ad Hoc
Committee on Management Options. He also discussed the current status of the
document developed by the Committee. At its last meeting the LAUC Statewide
Executive Board decided, after lengthy discussion, not to formally send the
Management Options document forward, but instead to use it as background
information and as a springboard for further discussion of issues at the LAUC
divisional level. LAUC Chair Alan Ritch will gather comments based on local
discussion and synthesize it into recommendations to be sent to Library
It was decided to hold a brown bag meeting for discussing the Ad Hoc Committee
on Management Options 'document.' The meeting will be held on 2 December in
Room 322, 12-1pm.
