Promotion Guidelines for Academic Librarians at the University of Alabama: Criteria and Procedures.
Hogan, Donna R.
This guide, quite specific to one institution, was developed as a companion document to the University of Alabama Libraries Tenure Document. It interprets and supplements the University of Alabama "Faculty Handbook" requirements for promotion. Some of the differences in performance and effectiveness between regular teaching faculty and librarians are addressed. Appropriate research, publication, creative activity, and scholarly achievement are outlined in detail for each rank. General remarks suggest appropriate timing for application for promotion to a potential candidate. The "Timeline for Promotion and Tenure" was prepared to more adequately reflect the time needed for the process of promotion and its calendar overlap with the tenure process. "Documentation for Promotion" serves as a checklist for the promotion dossier. An appropriate format to use in requesting letters of support for a promotion candidate is suggested in the document "Request for Promotion Support Letters.""Suggested Promotion Committee Procedures" is an outline of the process and timeline of the promotion committee, which is initiated when the personnel officer receives a promotion candidate's dossier.
