Librarian Personnel Committee


The Librarian Personnel Committee is an elected body whose purpose is to represent the issues and concerns of all Libraries Academic Professionals in the 97xx classes. It is comprised of six members, all Academic Professionals in the 97xx classes, which includes Librarians on the continuous appointment track, Librarians with continuous appointment, Librarians on annual appointments, Libraries Information Technology staff, and the Libraries' development officer.

The Librarian Personnel Committee assumes an advocacy role on issues where there is a general consent among the Academic Professionals. In this capacity, the Committee makes recommendations to the University Librarian regarding personnel policies and practices related to Academic Professionals, either at its own initiative or at the initiative of the University Librarian. The Chair of the Librarian Personnel Committee serves on the University Libraries’ Executive Committee and also carries forth to that body issues and concerns on which the Academic Professionals have reached general consent.

On all issues and concerns, the Librarian Personnel Committee’s activities are informed by wide-spread, regular consultation with the Academic Professional staff.
