Erin will work with Jill Glaser to create the DC webpage which Michelle Curttwirhgt has agreed to then maintain.

Classified Conference Personnel Committee (CCPC)
Eleanora Drury has agreed to serve for 2004-05. Still waiting to hear from Robert re: Ela Choromanska. Sheila Orth is also considering, but not confirmed. Mark Lasnier, Tanya Shaw and Rita Wilson declined. Brainstormed other possibilities: Heather Howard and Jill Becker, whom Laura will contact.
There will be an executive council meeting on 11/3/04.
Mike Rusche was able to report on the Public Relations committee which met to talk about communications, senate meetings announcements and minutes via email or mail as opposed to the current list of meetings on the webpage only. This will be impacted by the work of the ad hoc committee regarding computer access to classified employees who has ready for approval a letter to the Chancellor re: access in each area or allowing time each day to travel/access email and work related web info. ACTC is meeting on 11/4 to hear about Digital Libraries and the Information Services password policy to be implemented sometime next year.
Mary Baker reported that the Personnel Committee met yesterday and reviewed
the final draft suggestions for FAQs for Disciplinary Processes for Performance
Problems and Conduct Problems. Also at the request of Ola Faucher, Head of
KU Human Resources, this committee just started reviewing changes to the staff
handbook regarding counseling and discipline. Many questions prompted inviting
Ola to attend the next meeting. One thing that came up at the meeting is that
it might be a good idea for all employees to save any written communication
they have with their supervisor and, possibly, also log oral communications
as well. AlsoUCL met 10/28 (unproofed mintues attached)
26 returned ballots resulting in election of Monica Claassen-Wilson as Vice Chair 2004-05.
Monica Claassen-Wilson - 25
Write-in (for Rebecca Claassen) - 1
New library website template http://www2.lib.ku.edu/public/test/template/template_sample.shtml to be the format for all public sites. Discussed some possible edits to the current site http://www2.lib.ku.edu/kulss/ , such as:
- make an archive page for old stuff
- combine membership and executive board
- make use of drop downs
- review placement of “participation myths”
CCEB’s next meeting will use projector/laptop to flush out these and other changes.
Parking Lot Issue: Group Rep Structure
Staff moves result in the following change in representative total numbers. After some discussion of the division by building vs. division by function (i.e. Access services both in Ans and Watson) It was decided no change needed to be made in restructuring this representation.
Grp 1=21 (from 20)
Grp 2=21 (from 20)
Grp 3=18 (from 20)
Grp 4=21 (from 19)
