Library Faculty Assembly: Faculty Evaluation Task Force

The UF Library Faculty Assembly (LFA) is the official faculty body for College Level Shared Governance, serving all faculty librarians at the University of Florida. This Guide replaces the website at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/LFA/

Faculty Evaluation Task Force

Current Members:

  • Joe Aufmuth (Chair)
  • Steve Carrico
  • Brian Keith
  • Elizabeth Outler
  • Patrick Reakes
  • Michele Tennant
  • Ben Walker

Objective:

To maintain an annual faculty evaluation design for the Smathers Libraries that promotes and recognizes professional accomplishment, growth, engagement, and enrichment of library faculty through the utilization of fair, meaningful, and distinguishable rating levels that are applicable to the wide variety of professional endeavors in which library faculty are active.

Charge 3/6/13

Review and revise the previous draft 4 tier evaluation rating levels as necessary to address the concerns of library faculty and to serve the Smathers Libraries objectives for a performance rating system which best promotes and recognizes professional accomplishment, growth, engagement, and enrichment of library faculty through the utilization of fair, meaningful, and distinguishable rating levels that are applicable to the wide variety of professional endeavors in which library faculty are active.  The task force should solicit and assess the input of their colleagues and present a revised final draft to the LFA not later than the May meeting.

Original Charge/Duties:

  1. Examine the evaluation levels and level descriptions of peer groups (in Libraries, elsewhere on campus, and nationally) to identify and assess alternatives or refinements to our current levels.
  2. Review relevant UF policies and regulations.
  3. Report findings to LFA officers, Library Council and library administrators and solicit their comments.
  4. Recommend a series of evaluation levels and descriptions that would best serve the Libraries and faculty.

Note: The committee's recommendations will be considered upon receipt, but the earliest a new model could be implemented would be for the 2013 reviews for the 2012-2013 evaluation period.
