AD Meeting notes, Aug. 29, 2013

Present:  Mike Roy, Jim Stuart, David Ludwig, Mary Backus, Rebekah Irwin, Chris Norris, Terry Simpkins, Carol Peddie and Doreen Bernier

We reviewed the Space Team’s proposal to address the short-term need for additional office space for newly hired positions.  The proposal also offered suggestions to consolidate other workgroup areas who have outgrown their current locations within Davis.   The directors approved the following office moves:

  • Move Charlotte Pratt from 116 to 216 to share with Susan Simmons until more private space becomes available;
  • Move Ian Burke and student assistant from 115 to 116;
  • Move Cindy Peet from 116 into 115;
  • Assign the new Information Security Analyst to 116 (Burke and assistants).

The Team will meet with the directors in September to discuss the remaining recommendations.

Chris presented the proposed Information Security Auditing Standard Operating Procedures for review and discussion.  The procedures were written as guidelines for auditing the security of institutional data, and are intended for internal LIS use.  Chris will draft a summary more appropriate for the broader College community.

It is time again for the annual review of the LIS portions of the College Handbook.  Chris is coordinating, and he has asked the directors to review and make revisions as needed to the sections assigned to them.

Our revised student assistants budget request came in considerably higher than our current allocation.  After a lengthy discussion, the directors asked User Services to reduce their student assistants budget and Curricular Technology to reduce the Digital Media Tutors.  Additional funds will be reallocated from software, library resources, and a few other paid expenses that came in lower than budgeted (e.g. Moodle costs).

Our next meeting will be a retreat on Thursday, Sept. 5 to discuss the organization of the Web Team.

Thanks for reading,
Terry & Doreen
