Present: Mike Roy, Shel Sax, Terry Simpkins, Chris Norris, Mary Backus, Carol Peddie and Doreen Bernier
The President’s Office has begun efforts to gather information about internal compliance requirements (“things which we require or request of ourselves, office-to-office, in order to get our work done. Things that used to be able to get done with a single phone call that now requires several forms, paperwork, and follow up”). Discussed their request for a list from each department of processes that might have the effect of making it more difficult to get work done.
We deferred discussion of the Curricular Technology Team’s charge until the September AD’s retreat. A future All-LIS staff open meeting will also be dedicated to how the teams vs. workgroups are working.
We talked about the academic software request process. Terry will convene a small group (Lisa Terrier, Carrie Macfarlane, Carol, Terry, Mary).
Mike requested agenda suggestions for future LIS meetings (managers, directors retreats, all staff meetings and optional all staff meetings). Mike will create a draft list and distribute to the ADs for comments.
Thanks for reading,
Terry & Doreen
