SIMS Task Force Report ExComm continued its discussion with Corliss Lee and Mari Miller, members of the SIMS Task Force. ExComm approved the recommendation to appoint a new task force to organize and promote internships at UC Berkeley Libraries. The task force will gather comments on the draft guidelines and checklist, then finalize them in preparation for fall internships. Lily appointed Mari to chair this task force. ExComm postponed discussion of the recommendation to appoint a second task force on SIMS and the library community. Action Item: Mari will draft the charge for the internship task force. Once ExComm approves the charge, Lily will call for volunteers and appoint the task force. Action Item: Corliss will draft the charge for the second task force on SIMS and the library community. ExComm will discuss the draft charge. If approved, Lily will call for volunteers and appoint the task force. B. Professional Development Fund Allotment for 2005-2006 ExComm decided to wait for the final budget numbers before setting the actual allotment. LAUC-B members can expect at least as much as last year ($700), so they can be reimbursed up to that amount for now. Action Item: Harrison will send an email to LAUC-B members explaining the situation. C. New Librarian Reception ExComm decided to hold a New Librarian Reception from 4-6 p.m. on either Tuesday, March 21 or Wednesday, March 22 (if the Morrison Library is available). Action Item: Brian will reserve the Morrison Library and arrange catering. Action Item: Brian and Rita will finalize their lists of new librarians. D. LAUC-B Conference Lily appointed Harrison to chair the conference planning committee. He will work with the committee to refine the conference topic. Discussions will continue at our next meeting. Action Item: Harrison will draft a call for the conference planning committee. IV. New Business A. Action Items from LAUC Fall Assembly Minutes Lily highlighted several action items from the LAUC Fall Assembly. Some may require discussion by ExComm in the future, including gathering LAUC-B input on the recently released report of the Bibliographic Services Task Force. B. Draft Template for LAUC-B Committee Web Pages Postponed until a future meeting. C. UCSF Request for External Reviewer UCSF needs an external reviewer to assist with its peer review. ExComm agreed that the reviewer must have career status; it would also be helpful to have experience on CAPA or an ad hoc committee. Action Item: Lily will send an email to LAUC-B members asking for volunteers. ***** Next LAUC-B ExComm meeting will be held on Thursday, February 9, 10am -12pm, 303 Doe Library.
