ONE UNIVERSITY, ONE LIBRARY: A Budgetary Perspective From the Outside In
Thursday, May 13, 2004
Librarians Association of the University of California
University of California, Riverside
Librarians are acutely aware of the funding challenges that face the University at large, but are less aware of the University's many political and lobbying activities in support of campus and library funding. At the highest level, these involve interaction between the Regents, the Office of the President, and the State of California. Campus leaders and the faculty also play important roles in the preservation of library funding. Within the sphere of the profession, the information we receive about how budgets are made--and protected--often follows the completion of a the budget, even thought many people are active throughout the entire fiscal and academic calendars.
This program brings together three distinguished speakers who will discuss the process of developing and maintaining library funding, within the larger contexts of campus affairs, faculty relations, and statewide long-range planning. At each of these levels, coalitions of academics and administrators collaborate and contribute to the University's overall case for funding from the state of State of California. Presenters include a Library, an Associate University Librarian, and the Director of Long Range Planning at the Office of the President. The program promises to be lively and entertaining, and will give members of LAUC inside views of budgetary and program development. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
