The term of office shall begin with a review of the position description as drafted by the Library Department Co-Chairs and shall end with either the announcement of a hiring or a cancellation of the search.
The Library Faculty Hiring Committee shall consist of at least three members elected by all of the Library faculty (including lecturers). One member of the committee shall be a current member of the Library Retention, Tenure and Promotion committee (RTP). All Library tenured/tenure-track faculty are eligible to stand for election to the remaining two positions.
A separate Hiring Committee shall normally be formed for each tenure-track faculty recruitment.
The members of each Hiring Committee shall elect one of their members to serve as Chair (current RTP member or from among members who have previously served on a Hiring Committee).
