new APM in winter for review. “Research & Creative Activity” is included in APM language.
v. CDL Director search is still underway.
vi. Three new system‐wide LAUC committees are formed: Archives, LAUC Journal, and
Web Content. (see https://lauc.ucop.edu/committees for all LAUC committees).
Clarification question was asked regarding the archives committee; the LAUC archives
are for systemwide materials (not local materials). The physical archives are at UCB.
They use box.com for documents. In the past, since several (depreciated) systems were
used to store electronic documents, some materials are hard to find.

5. Senate Rep reports
a. Committee on Courses: Tiffany Moxham reporting.
i. The system used for course approval (currently called CRAMS) is changing. They are trying
to streamline and simplify the process.
ii. Regarding eCourses, Tiffany reported there was discussion and concern regarding online
proctoring and authentication of students. The new eCourse requests will require a statement
of the system used to deliver the course. Concern on the content of eCourses and creating
an effective online experience. Proctoring adds an additional expense onto the student;
there is no online proctoring on campus. Steve stated that might change in the long‐term,
that G73 was being looked at as a possible place, but they require dedicated workstations for
proctoring. An issue of UC systemwide eCourses is while UCR may deliver some of the courses,
we receive no funds or enrollment as a result. Students in these systemwide eCourses
do not have a NetID and are not able to use our resources. It was reported that
the Masters in Engineering program uses lecture capture for their courses.
b. Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication: No report.
