Appointees announced
Following a selection process coordinated by SOPAG, the Council of University Librarians (CoUL) has finalized membership for the major groups in the new UC Libraries Advisory Structure. Thanks to all of those who were considered for these positions and thanks also to SOPAG and the UC Libraries Advisory Structure Implementation Team for all the work that went into the development of the new structure and formation of the groups.

By populating the new groups with individuals who possess a range of expertise, we hope to create dynamic teams that can bring a cross-functional approach to their work to meet their charges. The groups will begin meeting in July, and the members are as follows:

Common Knowledge Groups (CKGs) To Be Launched in Fall
The UC Libraries Advisory Structure Implementation Team has laid the foundation for the formation of the Common Knowledge Groups (CKGs). One CKG will start its activity at the same time as the new Advisory Structure, to provide support to the Portfolio Managers from Day One. The development of the other CKGs will be the first responsibility of the Coordinating Committee once it begins its work in July. We anticipate the groups can start their activity in early fall 2013.

Ongoing Work to be Continued
The Advisory Structure Implementation Team has worked with SOPAG to document all of the current ongoing work of the existing All Campus Groups (ACGs) and their subgroups, including Common Interest Groups (CIGs). In addition, the team has added all systemwide services to ensure that no work is lost. These projects will be passed on to the new groups as they begin their work.
