  1. Introduction
  2. The practice of librarianship is a multifaceted discipline in which library faculty engage in a broad spectrum of professional endeavors. As specialists, librarians are responsible for providing access to information, document delivery, collection development and preservation, digitization, technological expertise and support, bibliographic control and organization, instruction, reference, outreach services, and administration and planning. FAU Libraries’ faculty are partners with other academic faculty and contribute to the University’s goals of teaching, research, and service.

    This document serves as a guide both for candidates who are eligible for promotion in rank, and for the individuals charged with the responsibility of evaluating those candidates. It describes in detail the timetable, policies, and procedures associated with all aspects of the review process. In addition, it outlines the basic assumptions and criteria that underlie the process.

    The attached criteria and procedures will ensure librarians an opportunity to be reviewed on equitable terms that adequately recognize the differences in individual positions and contributions, within a reasonable time, for promotion within the FAU Libraries. The promotion review process is a qualitative evaluation rather than a mere quantitative check-off. Promotion of candidates is not automatic.

    The Florida Atlantic University Libraries Promotion Guidelines are to be used in conjunction with the "Promotion and Tenure" memorandum from the Office of the Provost.

    This document will be updated on a continuing basis to maintain compliance with University requirements and the changing environment of academic librarianship. Review and/or revision of this document may be undertaken at the request of the majority of library faculty, the Dean of University Libraries, or the Provost. Recommended revisions are forwarded to the Provost by the Dean of University Libraries. The URLs, links, typographical, or spelling errors within this document will be revised as necessary and will not require the request of the majority of the library faculty, the Dean of University Libraries, or the Provost.


  1. Criteria for Promotion Specific to Rank

  2. Ranks of library faculty parallel those of other members of the faculty: assistant, associate, and university librarian.

    1. Promotion from Assistant to Associate University Librarian

      1. Serve a minimum of five years FTE (full-time equivalent) experience after receiving the appropriate master's degree, at least two of which must be in rank at Florida Atlantic University (see Appendix A). Completion of time requirements must be fulfilled by the time the promotion becomes effective, which is the beginning of the contractual year following the promotion process.

      2. Associate university librarians are expected to have achieved a high level of expertise and have a demonstrated record of accomplishments to advance the goals of the FAU Libraries, the University, and the profession. Librarians at this rank are expected to exercise significant professional judgment and provide evidence of a substantial degree of leadership.

      3. Provide evidence of distinction and commitment significantly beyond the degree expected of an assistant university librarian in scholarship, research, and/or creative endeavors, with notable contributions to the advancement of librarianship and increasing service to the University, and community.


    2. Promotion from Associate to University Librarian


    3. Promotion to this rank is predicated upon mastery of the qualities described for an associate university librarian at Florida Atlantic University. University librarians’ careers show evidence of superior performance at the highest levels of professional responsibility.

      1. Serve a minimum of eight years FTE experience after receiving the appropriate master's degree, at least two of which must be in rank at Florida Atlantic University (see Appendix A). Completion of time requirements must be fulfilled by the time the promotion becomes effective, which is the beginning of the contractual year following the promotion process.

      2. University librarians are expected to have achieved a superior level of expertise and have a demonstrated record of accomplishments to advance the goals of the FAU Libraries, the University, and the profession. Librarians at this rank are expected to exercise the highest level of professional judgment and provide evidence of longstanding leadership.

      3. Provide evidence of distinction and commitment in scholarship, research, and/or creative endeavors, with notable contributions to the advancement of librarianship and service to the University and community.

      4. Provide evidence of recognized distinction in at least one of the categories of librarianship, scholarship, or service.


  1. Criteria for Promotion Specific to Areas of Achievement


  2. The areas of achievement to be considered in the promotion process are as follows: Librarianship, Scholarship, Research, and/or Creative Endeavor, and Service.

    1. Librarianship

    2. Librarianship is the most important criterion for faculty in the FAU Libraries and is given the most weight in promotion decisions. Library faculty should demonstrate sustained growth and high-quality contributions in the area(s) of their core responsibilities. General characteristics expected of all library faculty regardless of job assignment include but are not limited to:

      • Consistency in professional performance and effectiveness
      • Imagination and skill in solving complex problems
      • Initiative in improving processes and services
      • Ability to organize work and produce results
      • Effective communication skills
      • Awareness of current developments in the library profession and appropriate subject fields
      • Ability to apply professional principles and standards to local situations
      • Meaningful participation in departmental or library-wide decision making
      • Comprehensive understanding of the departments', Libraries', and Universities' goals
      • Flexibility to adapt to new technologies and acquire new skills
      • Accuracy and attention to detail
      • Ability to work effectively in a team environment
      • Effective decision making
      • Ability to work effectively in a variety of library functional areas
      • Effective supervision (if assigned)
      • Leadership
      • Active participation in self-study activities in all areas of the FAU libraries' operations
      • Ability to innovate
      • Perform training/instruction as assigned

      Academic libraries are complex information environments, and the responsibilities of library faculty vary markedly in their focus. The multifaceted nature of library faculty responsibilities and contributions constitutes the strength of the FAU Libraries. As specialists, librarians are responsible for providing access to information, document delivery, collection development and preservation, digitization, technological expertise and support, bibliographic control and organization, instruction, reference, outreach, and administration and planning.

    3. Scholarship, Research, and/or Creative Endeavor

    4. Library faculty are expected to establish and sustain a program of high quality research and/or creative accomplishments appropriate to their core responsibilities and rank as based on the percentage of time allocated to research/writing in the librarian’s annual assignment and which are consistent with the FAU Libraries mission and goals. Scholarship is not evaluated on the basis of philosophical orientation nor the specific topic examined.

      In addition, the scholarship, research, and/or creative activities of the candidate will be examined as an entire body of work. Criteria for evaluating the quality of a candidate’s research, regardless of format, includes evidence of originality, breadth of dissemination, and impact on scholarship and/or practice in the candidate’s field of research. Works that demonstrate a command of a subject, collect and analyze new data, undergo rigorous peer review prior to publication, and are widely disseminated are particularly important.

      When reviewing a candidate’s promotion portfolio, it is important to take into consideration that excellent performance or librarianship is the primary criterion, and professional development, research, and/or creativity and service are secondary. Librarians are 9- or 12- month faculty. The candidate’s annual assignment will also be reviewed and evaluated according to how much time is allocated by his/her supervisor for service and scholarship activities. This evaluation will be given merit when deciding the candidate’s likelihood for promotion.

      The FAU Libraries value both collaboration and individual initiative. Although coauthored or solo-authored publications and presentations are both valued, the candidate’s portfolio should show some evidence of independent research, particularly for candidates to the level of University Librarian.

      Weight will be given to scholarship published in peer-reviewed publications. In addition, librarians may request up to 10% of one’s annual assignment to complete research as cited in the Faculty Handbook (http://www.staff.library.fau.edu/handbook/professional_development.htm ). At the year-end evaluation, if productivity is satisfactory, the librarian may request additional time in his or her annual assignment if agreed upon by the supervisor.

      Scholarship of Discovery:
       
      • Obtaining grants and other funding, such as fellowships, internships or study leaves, which benefit the FAU Libraries or librarianship
      • Assessment Studies
      • Developing original computer software or successful adaptations of software for the FAU Libraries or professional use
      • Developing original uses of other technologies to enhance FAU Libraries’ operations


      Scholarship of Integration
       
      • Presentations (given by individuals) that have been invited, accepted, or otherwise solicited by professional or scholarly organizations
      • Panel presentations that have been invited, accepted, or otherwise solicited by professional or scholarly organizations
      • Poster sessions that have been invited, accepted, or otherwise solicited by professional or scholarly organizations
      • Recruitment and marketing
      • Exhibitions that have been invited, accepted, or otherwise solicited by professional or scholarly organizations


      Scholarship of application
       
      • Scholarship published in peer reviewed journals, book chapters, books
      • Scholarship published in significant non-refereed journals, book chapters, books
      • Editorship or editorial contributions for scholarly publications
      • Publications that have been invited or otherwise solicited by professional or scholarly organizations
      • Completion of a dissertation or a thesis
      • Advanced study, such as for credit courses, additional degrees, or certification in a specialization.
      • Self-education toward a specific goal agreed upon with the individual's supervisor; these contracted goals should develop proficiencies that enhance library services
      • Obtaining Internships, fellowships, or sabbaticals
      • Special projects (above and beyond one’s annual assignment)


      Scholarship of Teaching
       
      • The research and development of courses or classes in librarianship or a scholarly topic where the individual has expertise, such as teaching a semester-long for credit course (s)
      • Development and teaching of continuing education workshops or courses for library colleagues
      • Professional mentoring activities (SEFLIN, FLA, ACRL, external)
      • Advising and mentoring of DIS students, interns, etc.

       
    5. Service

    6. The FAU Libraries highly value active participation and leadership in service to the University, FAU Libraries, community, and profession. Library faculty are expected to apply their professional expertise in developing new programs and services, providing solutions to problems, and guiding the strategic direction of the FAU Libraries. Library faculty members contribute to the governance of the University or its various units, and to the diversity and intellectual life of the University and the community. Professional participation at an appropriate level is expected. Such participation may be in regional, state, national, or international associations or organizations.

      Examples of Service include but are not limited to:
       
        1. Participation in committees and/or task forces at all levels (FAU Libraries, University, regional, state, national, and international) with emphasis on leadership
        2. Mentorship of new faculty
        3. Contributions to the University’s programs to enhance equal opportunity and cultural diversity
        4. Assistance to student organizations
        5. Consultation on professional topics
        6. Participation in promotion and academic governance processes
        7. Outreach service or service in professional associations or learned societies with emphasis on leadership
        8. Service in civic organizations and community agencies
        9. Collaboration with regional cultural organizations
        10. Presentations to community groups or civic organizations
        11. Participation in University activities and scholarly events
        12. Any other extracurricular involvement or volunteer commitments that significantly improve the well-being of the community
           

  1. FAU Libraries Promotion Documentation:
    Portfolio and Supplement

The library faculty member is responsible for supplying evidence of accomplishment to support the granting of promotion. This evidence is compiled into a portfolio and a supplement, the content and arrangement of which are determined by the most recent University "Promotion and Tenure" memorandum promulgated by the Office of the Provost. For advice and assistance in preparing a promotion portfolio and supplement of the highest possible quality, the candidate is recommended to consult with an advisor/mentor who has successfully completed the promotion process at FAU Libraries, or with the FAU Libraries Promotion Committee (also referred to as Promotion Committee or Committee).

Promotion and Supplement portfolios that are submitted to the Promotion Committee that fail to meet the requirements stated in the University "Promotion and Tenure" memorandum and the FAU Libraries Promotion Guidelines will not be accepted for consideration and will be returned immediately to the candidate.

  1. The following is intended to interpret some of the terms the Provost’s document may contain into their library equivalent.


  2. Documentation for use by the Promotion Committee should be included in the Supplementary Portfolio.

    The Supplementary Portfolio must include the Library Promotion Application Form (See Appendix B) but may also include:
     
    • Transcripts of courses completed after the appropriate master’s degree
    • Documentation of completed continuing education activities
    • Professional certifications
    • Additional letters of commendation or acknowledgement
    • If applicable, a letter from the Dean of University Libraries detailing the amount of professional experience credited at the time of initial appointment at FAU Libraries (See Appendix A)

Appendix A

Florida Atlantic University Libraries:
Guidelines for Assessing Previous Work Experience

Crediting of prior experience towards fulfillment of promotion eligibility requirements, including part-time service, must be negotiated at the time of initial appointment at Florida Atlantic University regardless of the rank into which a librarian is being hired.

If this assessment of prior experience did not take place at the time of initial appointment, the librarian may request a statement of credited, professional experience from the Dean of University Libraries by April 1st to ensure appropriate review time prior to the official call for promotion applicants during the second week of April.

Professional Library Experience:

After receiving an ALA-accredited master's degree, professional library experience in an accredited U.S. academic institution or a recognized and established foreign academic institution may normally be credited on a one-to-one ratio.

Credit towards promotion for professional librarian experience in other types of libraries may be given after such experience has been carefully examined and evaluated by the Dean of University Libraries. While the promotion decision considers the entire academic career, it should weigh heavily the candidate’s accomplishments and activities while at the Florida Atlantic University Libraries.

Professional Non-Library Experience:

The term "professional," as used here, refers strictly to those specialty fields requiring an academic degree. Potentially relevant non-library experience may include academically related or professional business/industrial experience. Examples include teacher, nurse, lawyer, doctor, counselor, CPA, marketing researcher, chemist, computer scientist, etc. Fields requiring only a license or certificate do not apply.

Educational Leave:

The candidate may not receive credit towards professional library experience and time in rank for time spent on educational leave. Sabbaticals are counted as time in rank.

Numerical Library Faculty Vote

Introduction:

The purpose of the numerical library faculty vote is to determine the FAU Libraries recommendation regarding a candidate’s application for promotion. The review of a colleague’s portfolio for promotion is one of the most important obligations for library faculty.


Voting Procedures:

During the second week of September, the candidate’s promotion portfolios will be available for review by the library faculty. Secret ballots will be sent to all library faculty members who have been employed with faculty status in the FAU Libraries for one year at the start of the promotion process. Everyone except for the Dean of the Libraries should receive a ballot. The ballot will state the candidate’s name and will designate the present rank and rank sought. On the ballot, all library faculty members who have been employed with faculty status in the FAU Libraries for one year at the start of the promotion process, except for the Dean of the Libraries, will be asked whether the candidate should be recommended for promotion. The ballot will also include the date the ballots should be returned and counted as specified by the Promotion Committee. Library faculty should ONLY abstain from voting when there is a clear conflict of interest. Being unfamiliar with a candidate or portfolio is not considered a conflict of interest. A clear conflict of interest does exist when there is personal financial gain.

Confidentiality in Voting Procedures:

In order to ensure the confidentiality of the candidate's promotion portfolio, a list of eligible voting faculty with permission to view the information will be provided to the individual responsible for supervising the portfolio review.  This list shall be provided by the Promotion Committee.

Voting Results:

There is no specific weight assigned to this vote. The candidate’s promotion portfolios including requested documents by the Promotion Committee (e.g. numerical library faculty vote, peer review forms, supervisor’s letter, referees' letters, etc.) are all carefully considered in the Promotion Committee’s recommendation to the Dean of University Libraries.

The supervisor's letter will include the numerical library faculty vote, an explanation of who had voting rights on the application, and how the voting was done.
