Re: Nominations for the Advisory Search Committee for Chief Librarian

On June 30, 2011, Ms. Carole Moore will complete her current term as Chief Librarian of the University. Ms. Moore has indicated she will not be seeking re-appointment.

In accordance with Section 66 of the Policy on Librarians, I am writing to call for nominations of individuals to serve on the advisory committee that will advise the President on the appointment of the Chief Librarian. The Policy specifies that the Vice-President and Provost or designate will chair the committee. The committee will have twelve additional members, of whom no fewer than seven shall be appointed from within the Library system, and of whom no fewer than four will be librarians in this University. The committee will be appointed by the Vice-President and Provost and be as representative of the University community as is feasible.

The advisory committee will begin meeting in the fall.

Nominations for the committee should be sent by June 10, via the Vice-President and Provost's web site online form at  

Questions should be directed to Helen Lasthiotakis, Director, Academic Programs and Policy by phone at 416.946.0501 or email
