II-1.11 - POLICY ON PART-TIME FACULTY MEMBERS ENGAGED
EXCLUSIVELY OR PRIMARILY IN LIBRARY SERVICES
(Approved by the Board of Regents, April 7, 2000)
An institution may employ faculty members engaged
exclusively or primarily in library services on a part-time
basis. In order to be considered eligible for permanent
status, a part-time librarian's commitment shall be at least
fifty percent time for the fiscal year.
1. Each institution which employs part-time librarians at
the ranks of Librarian I, Librarian II, Librarian III, and
Librarian IV shall develop written procedures for the
appointment of, promotion of, and granting of permanent
status to such individuals. Appointment, reappointment,
permanent status, promotion, and termination of such
librarians shall be consistent with the policies and
procedures established for permanent full-time librarians.
2. The length of the probationary period for permanent-
status consideration shall ordinarily be based upon the
number of full-time equivalent years accrued by the
librarian at the institution. Part-time individuals at the
ranks of Librarian I, Librarian II, Librarian III, and
Librarian IV are eligible for full-time positions consistent
with institutional policies.
3. Part-time librarians at the ranks of Librarian I,
Librarian II, Librarian III, and Librarian IV whose
appointments are at least fifty percent time shall be
entitled to participate in the institution's benefits
programs on a proportional basis or otherwise, as permitted
by those programs.
