5. New Business
Impressions regarding hosting off site: Parking was free. Site was convenient for visiting LAUC members. Less work for local LAUC because of the logistics of getting people to Santa Cruz from the airport. It was affordable, and the hotel was affordable. Maindownside was that it was harder to show people our new building. AM will write up for Annual Report.
LAUC agreed to write a welcome letter to incoming AUL Chandler. AM will post to Google Docs for others to view and edit.
c. Debrief on spring general membership meeting
Scheduling was not ideal. Exercises had participation from those present. For Next Gen Librarian follow up at UCSC, see Google Doc discussion
AM mentioned tie in with Brian Mathews' white paper, and another paper she’s found. Continue discussion as an executive meeting about those two documents in July, with the goal of organizing a larger discussion.
d. CAPA report debrief
We need to clarify/establish procedures for document maintenance and updates to local procedures. Ask other campuses how they handle this issue to in order to establish best practices as well as talking to previous LAUCSC executive board and CAPA members. Is the process initiated by administration or other parties, who does actual updates, and what is the procedure. Also consider and solicit additional areas needing revision.
KL will send CAPA Report minutes to membership for review.
Currently, ad hoc committee is set to look at content potentially needing revision, including:
- PAPA proposed change regarding step 6-7;
- Format/structure of the document to make it easier to use; see Jaffe email to LAUC SC list, June 5;
- Updating the recruitment timeline and activities.
LAUC Buddy Program review - move up for review next meeting. Look at UCSB’s program for ideas to potentially incorporate.
