Heilos, Lawrence J.; And Others
This handbook of procedures developed by the Committee on Professional Concerns (COPC) of the University of South Florida (USF) describes the process to be used in recruiting and hiring qualified candidates for positions on the USF library faculty. The publication is divided into six sections: (1) information on the USF equal employment opportunity program; (2) delineation of the composition of library recruitment search committees and committee service requirements; (3) an outline of search committee procedures for advertising positions, preserving applicant records, handling applications, selecting interviewees, organizing and conducting day-long interview/visits, and making recommendations on candidate selection; (4) description of post-recommendation procedures including final recruitment decisions and notification of successful and unsuccessful candidates; (5) discussion of reimbursement of candidate interview expenses; and (6) hints and comments from previous search committees. The publication concludes with appendices comprising the USF Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Plan, samples of 20 forms and letters used in the recruitment process, guidelines for asking questions in the library employment interview, a list of inclusions for candidate information packets, a statement on where to obtain guidelines for pre-employment inquiries, and a check list for briefing the candidates on library recruitment procedures.
