Search Procedures (Ad Hoc)

Committee Charge

Revise the search committee procedures for professional library positions

  1. Revise the current library resources manual to reconcile anomalies in hiring and promotions procedures for staff and consider the proposal of adding the option to hire fulltime library support staff members without a formal search committee but with input solicited from all library staff interested in the particular search. How similar should procedures for hiring staff be to the procedures for hiring faculty? Also verify that the manual is in line with current University and BOR policies/procedures.
  2. Recommend how current classifications not outlined in the manual should be handled by the library. Is an additional manual needed? Should they simply be added in? Should they be included at all?

Proposals/Recommendations/Working Documents

  • Position Criteria from GSU -- According to Human Resources, these seem to be the basic position criteria that they are instituting here and that BOR is aiming to institute system-wide, which in either case would supercede our current ones. They are downloadable WordPerfect files.
