Reminder: Deadline to Volunteer for a CARLI Committee is Friday, April 27

(via Michelle Haake, Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois)

Each year CARLI has a number of opportunities to serve on various committees. Service on CARLI committees affords individuals a unique opportunity to use their experience and expertise to help shape the future of the consortium and its services. CARLI is now seeking volunteers to serve on nine advisory committees. Volunteers chosen will serve a three-year term, July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2021. Faculty and staff members from all CARLI member libraries, with all levels of experience, are encouraged to apply.

To volunteer, please complete the committee volunteer form by April 27. To be considered for appointment, you must fill out the online form, even if you have previously submitted a form, or if you are a current committee member whose term is expiring and you wish to be considered again. CARLI seeks to include as many individuals and institutions as possible in committee service, so committee rosters are limited to one person from any institution, and reappointments are not routinely made.

Forms submitted by Friday, April 27, will be considered for initial FY 2019 appointments. The list of all volunteers will be retained until March 1, 2019 and will be used to fill other committee vacancies as they occur.

Individuals accepting appointments to CARLI committees are expected to participate fully and actively in the work of the committee, including regular attendance at meetings and committee-sponsored events held throughout the calendar year. CARLI makes every effort to conduct the majority of committee business using web conferencing technologies or via conference calls. However, committee service may require time and/or travel expenses for one or more in-person meetings each year.

The following CARLI committees are seeking members:

Collection Management Committee

Commercial Products Committee

Created Content Committee

Instruction Committee

Preservation Committee

Public Services Committee

Resource Sharing Committee

SFX System Committee

Technical Services Committee

To view the committee charge, and the current committee rosters, visit the Board and Committee pages. The Senior Director, in consultation with the Executive Committee of the CARLI Board of Directors will make appointments no later than June 15, 2017. All new committee members will officially begin work on July 1, 2018.

Please send questions about CARLI committees or the process for selecting committee members to CARLI support. We have also put together a short, informational video for anyone interested in volunteering.
