Whereas there has been limited consideration of faculty input into the Chancellor's Office document Master Plan Planning Guide: Library and Learning Resources Program -Draft of March 1994, and

Whereas the document's failure to describe the primary instructional role of library and learning resources faculty is a major content deficiency, and


Whereas faculty derive their authority in collegial governance issues from AB 1725 which recognizes them as subject matter experts and thus any document prepared without their input will lack insight from the discipline, and

Whereas the above Planning Guide lacks identification of library and learning resources faculty throughout the document,


Resolved that the Academic Senate recommend to the Chancellor that critical faculty issues in the Master Plan Planning Guide: Library and Learning Resources Program be corrected and the following concerns addressed:
1. identification of library and learning resources faculty throughout,
2. rewriting in terms of grammar, clarification and style,
3. the role of the Academic Senate and its authority for library faculty appointment and representation,
4. the essential role of librarians in teaching information access skills through critical thinking, and
5. how the large bureaucratic regional design will be funded to encourage faculty participation.
