     c) At the Fall LAUC Executive Board meeting, it was announced
that P. Inouye, LAUC Statewide Secretary, will notify division
secretaries when minutes are available on divisional websites,
gophers or via email.  L. Vida will then email the Executive
Committee member responsible for reviewing the minutes.  D. Sommer

          UCLA - C. Tarr
          UCSD - R. Moon

          UCSC - B. Weil
     d) A. Sevetson met with Tony Newcomb of the Blue Ribbon
Committee (BRC).  T. Newcomb had specific questions that he wanted
to discuss about Library communication with the user community; how
the Library receives feedback on new initiatives; review and
resource allocation; measuring user satisfaction.  The BRC also
asked P. Lyman for 2-3 sentence job descriptions for all
librarians.  To ensure that undergraduate (UG) issues are brought
to the committee, he is asking the ASUC for UG focus groups to give
the BRC feedback.  All BRC members are meeting with their
respective departments in order to receive comments.

     e) Marianne Constable, Chair Academic Senate Library
Committee, suggested that LAUC-B request that a librarian be 
appointed to the campus-wide Computing Review Committee. 

     ACTION: D. Sommer will draft a letter to The Vice Chancellor
suggesting committee members and distribute via email. 

The Committee then met in executive session.

The meeting was adjourned at 12:45 pm.  The next LAUC-B Executive
