LAUC-SD Librarian Service Recognition Guidelines

GUIDELINES FOR INCLUSION/DESIGNATION OF ANNUAL HONOREES:

Librarians celebrating a five-year increment service anniversary (5, 10, 15, 20, etc. years with the UCSD Libraries) prior to September 1 of the current year will be honored annually, including at a reception held each fall.  “Service anniversaries” for the purpose of the LSRP are determined within the following guidelines.

  • Honorees will be designated who reach a five-year increment service anniversary (5, 10, 15, 20, etc. years) with the UCSD Libraries.
  • The annual cutoff date for inclusion is August 31 of the current year.  For example, librarians who began with the UCSD Libraries between January 1 & August 31 of 2004 will be honored for a five-year anniversary in 2009; those beginning between January 1 & August 31 of 1999 will be honored for a ten-year anniversary in 2009; those beginning between January 1 & August 31 of 1994 will be honored for a fifteen-year anniversary in 2009; and so on.
  • Librarians beginning employment between September 1 and December 31 of applicable years will be honored in the next year.  For example, librarians who began with the UCSD Libraries between September 1 & December 31 of 2004 will be honored for a five-year anniversary in 2010; those beginning between September 1 & December 31 of 1999 will be honored for a ten-year anniversary in 2010; those beginning between September 1 & December 31 of 1994 will be honored for a fifteen-year anniversary in 2010; and so on.

  • Total service at UCSD, but outside the Libraries, is not accounted for in the LSRP.
  • Total service within UC is not accounted for in the LSRP.
  • Total service with the UCSD Libraries does not include any time an individual spent while employed with the UCSD Libraries as staff or student worker prior to becoming a librarian or serving in a librarian position.
  • Because service for the purpose of the LSRP is calculated purely from one’s start date in a librarian position at UCSD, it may differ from a person’s official UC service credit.
  • Employment for less than 100% time (part-time status, START participation, etc.) will not impact “service” as used for the purpose of the LSRP.  For example, individuals who spent part of their UCSD Libraries employment years working at less than full time will receive the same ‘credit’ as those who did work full-time for all of their UCSD Libraries employment years, as used for the purpose of this program.
  • Likewise, leaves of absence will not impact “service” as used for the purpose of the LSRP.  For example, individuals who took temporary leaves of absence during their employment years will receive the same ‘credit’ as those who worked full-time for all of their UCSD Libraries employment years, as used for the purpose of this program.
  • For individuals who separated from the UCSD Libraries and later returned to employment with the UCSD Libraries, their ‘credit’ for the LSRP will consist of the total time from both/all periods of employment added together. [Stacey: For these cases, please provide me with all actual dates for which the person worked with the UCSD Libraries, rather than just the start dates.]

The reception, along with a list of honoree names and their years of service, should be included in the first issue of the Library Newsletter released following the reception [via LHR].

This same information should also be posted on the LAUC-SD web site following the reception [via the LAUC-SD Webmaster].
