Faculty Governance at the University of Florida Libraries

Library Faculty Assembly (LFA) Re-Organization Committee Member Selection

Minutes - February 13, 2008: 9:00am

Marston Science Library, Room L201A

Meeting began 9:00 am and finished 10:00 am in MSL room 201A

Present: Joe Aufmuth, Vernon Kisling (Minutes), and Carol Kem (via phone)

The task for selecting members was based on the motion passed at the LF Assembly special meeting of 12 February 2008. This task was to select two faculty and one staff member from each of the four Smathers library divisions (with a preference for tenured faculty): Collection Management/Area Studies, Public Services, Technical Services, and Support Services.

The list of library faculty and staff, along with their positions and divisions was provided by Brian Keith (Head, Human Resources). In addition, the selection was based on selecting a diversity of departments and of past experiences and responsibilities in order to obtain a group with broad perspectives. The following individuals were selected and at the end of the meeting, Joe is to contact each individual to make sure they will be willing to serve on the committee and that these individuals meet with the approval of the Dean. If not, or if other problems arise, and different individuals have to be chosen, this will be reflected in an ADDENDUM to these minutes.
