LAUC-B Executive Committee 1992/93(12) April 28, 1993 MINUTES Present: E. Byrne, W. Diamond, M. Drabkin, G. Handman (Chair), R. Lhermitte, R. Moon, L. Osegueda G. Peete, A. Sevetson (Recorder), P. Stewart, K. Vanden Heuvel, A. Youmans Guests: L. Castillo-Speed, C. Delgado, D. Kearney Announcements: The LAUC Committee on Library Plans and Policies document "UC Libraries Forging Strategic Alliances for Technological Change" was distributed. New Business: Statewide budget issues were discussed. Ongoing Business: Upward evaluation of supervisors - G. Handman announced he will bring this up in the next meeting with D. Gregor. It had been effectively tabled last fall because of other business. Rotations and job postings - LAUC is highly supportive of current efforts to fill positions in the library system through rotational opportunities and similarly creative strategies. A number of issues were raised concerning the various rotation/reassignment positions which were recently listed in CU News. Some of the listings indicate specific qualifications, some do not; there is generally no indication of the process to be employed in interviewing and selecting candidates; there are inconsistencies in the terminology used to characterize the nature of the position (e.g. temporary vs permanent rotation or reassignment). The broader issue of how this type of rotational assignment impacts the distribution of FTE in the library system was raised--how is the process of filling open positions with existing staff tied into the larger process of priority setting and planning? CAPA will go over all currently listed rotations and make a list of questions for each and indicate whether they feel it would be appropriate for CAPA to be included in interviews.
