The California Digital Library is a unit within the department of Academic Planning, Programs, and Coordination at the UC Office of the President. Günter Waibel is the Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director, responsible for the direction, development, and management of the CDL.
The organizational structure of the CDL is based on four core programs, which are each led by a program manager and supported by a dedicated team of analysts and programmers. Additionally, the CDL has four groups that provide services to support the programs and the overall management of the broader organization.
Governance and Advisory Structure
The CDL’s primary advisory body is the Systemwide Library and Scholarly Information Advisory Committee (SLASIAC). It was established to advise the University on issues such as systemwide library policies and priorities, long term planning for the UC libraries, and strategies for enhancing the discovery, use and preservation of research and scholarship. SLASIAC’s members represent the faculty senate, information and educational technology, university libraries, and scholarly publishing.
The CDL coordinates with the Vice Provost of Academic Planning, Programs, and Coordination and the University Librarians on systemwide library planning activities. Representative groups for the UC libraries also advise the CDL on systemwide initiatives. Learn more at the UC Libraries website.
Several UC representative groups directly advise the CDL in specific domains. In addition, most CDL programs and services have liaison groups that assist with systemwide communication and operations. For more detail about CDL groups, including group members, minutes, and documents, see the Committees and Groups section.
