Jan Carter, our new Fund Coordinator for Arts & Humanities

I’m very pleased to announce that Jan Carter agreed in August to join the Collections Budget Group as the Fund Coordinator for the Arts & Humanities Group.  I also want to thank Jan for attending the July CBG meeting on an ad hoc basis as the A & H representative.

Jan is the selector and liaison for Philosophy, Religious Studies, Rhetoric and Graduate Services, and active member of the Arts & Humanities Council. Jan is also the CDL Resource Liaison for several philosophy and religion resources and participates in the UC Bibliographers Group for Philosophy and Religious Studies.

In addition to evaluating collections in her areas of selection, Jan has provided leadership in managing broader Doe and Moffitt NRLF projects, and recently served on the Large-Scale Collection Reviews Working Group.  She was also a member of the Role of the Librarian Team in the Library’s Re-Envisioning process.  Jan’s ability to take a library-wide perspective and her deep understanding of collection development and management issues make her an excellent addition to CBG.

Kathleen Gallagher to serve on Collections Budget Group

I’m very pleased to announce that beginning July 1, Kathleen Gallagher has agreed to join the Collections Budget Group as the Fund Coordinator for the Arts & Humanities Group.

Kathleen’s experience and flexibility in helping the Library address new challenges and opportunities make her an excellent candidate for CBG.  Her work on CSC, the consortial PDA position paper, the CDC journal evaluation project, and the Library Services Model self-study team have demonstrated Kathleen’s broad and deep understanding of collection development issues and her ability to take a library-wide perspective.

Claude Potts, who has served as the A&H Fund Coordinator, will take over from Jim Spohrer, to become the Fund Coordinator for International and Area Studies.

 I welcome Kathleen to CBG and thank Claude for his willingness to take on a new Fund Coordinator role.

Best, Bernie

Acquisitions Documentation: 1) Millennium Fund Reports, and 2) Ordering replacements

Thanks to Jim Gordon, we now have documents that answer oft-asked selectors’ questions:

Where are the fund reports? How do I view, print and copy data? Answers are here: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/asktico/procedures/acquisitions-millennium-fund-reports

“What process is triggered when I order a  replacement?” The answer is here http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/asktico/procedures/acquisitions-replacement-orders

Both of these links are “filed” on the Collections Services staff-side website, http://lib.berkeley.edu/Staff/CS/ under “Budget/Metrics” and “Print Management”, respectively.
