November 1-15, 2013:
Review Initiators will confer with librarians. Any librarian who is
not scheduled for an automatic review during this review period but who
wishes to be reviewed should inform the Review Initiator by
November 15, 2013. Review Initiators and librarians begin the
gathering of relevant documentation for promotion and career status
review in those cases where (1) the librarian is scheduled for a review,
or (2) the Department Head intends to initiate a review, or (3)
the librarian intends to request a review. Candidates should begin to
assemble their dossiers.
As soon after November 1 as possible, but by November 15 at
the latest, the candidate under review may suggest the names of
persons from whom letters of evaluation may be solicited. The Review
Initiator shall solicit letters evaluating the candidate from qualified
persons, including a reasonable number of persons whose names have been
provided by the candidate.
Any request for deferral of a scheduled promotion or career status
review must be made known to the Library Human Resources Department and
CAPA by mid-November at the latest. Review Initiator
should be prepared to present information concerning the available evidence which will form the
justification for their recommendations.
Concerns should be discussed with the candidate by the Review
Initiator, and consideration should be given to the content of
documentation that addresses such concerns.
December 2, 2013 to January 31, 2014:
Review Initiators and librarians put together the formal documentation
which will be used in the review. This should include:
Review Initiator's and Department Head's recommendation.
Librarian's signed self-evaluation.
Carefully chosen copies of reports, articles and books
which the candidate has authored or edited and other documentation which
the candidate believes may be of assistance in the evaluation.
