Mentoring -- Pat summarized the Mentoring Subcommittee's plans to develop a mentoring program for new librarians at Harvard. Sid informed the LAEC of a mentoring program under development by Human Resources department of the Harvard College Library. He suggested the Mentoring Subcommittee put both plans side-by-side in order to think about product differentiation. He also suggested informal focus groups to discover what kind of mentorship program librarians seek.
Fall Program -- The LAEC discussed a program proposal on "Patron Privacy" from the Rights and Responsibilities Committee. Though the program was proposed as a small event, the LAEC, Sid, and Barbara see Fall Program potential. Barbara agreed to speak with potential speakers. Other program ideas: institutional respositories for(i.e., D-Space), Harvard and the ARL Global Resources Program, newsworthy achievements of Harvard libraries, and collection development and preservation of digital resources.
