Stewart, K. Vanden Heuvel Absent: M. Drabkin, R. Moon Announcements: A. G. Handman distributed two handouts: 1) a letter to the Chancellors from President Peltason re: Campus Library Budgets, and 2) A. Ritch's letter to Vice Chancellor Moore regarding UCOP closing. 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 Committees. C. A. Youmans, new CAPA Chair and ex-officio member of LAUC-B, was welcomed. Ongoing business: 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 Council. 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.
