CARLI is now seeking volunteers to serve on eight advisory committees. Volunteers chosen will serve a three-year term, July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2022. Faculty and staff members from all CARLI member libraries, with all levels of experience, are encouraged to apply.

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. Over the next two years, members of designated committees will be working closely with staff and with other committees on the issues surrounding the impending Alma and Primo VE implementation. The events and projects for these committees will address consortial needs as we move through and past the complex and lengthy Alma and Primo VE implementation for I-Share’s 91 libraries. Staff at non-I-Share libraries are also encouraged to apply and to participate in this process.

To volunteer, please complete the committee volunteer form by April 26. 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.

CARLI will host a webinar for those interested in finding out more about committee service. Watch for the date and connection information coming soon.

Forms submitted by April 26 will be considered for initial FY 20 appointments. The list of all volunteers will be retained until March 1, 2020 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, including summer months. 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

·         Technical Services Committee

To view committee charge, and 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 14, 2019. All new committee members will officially begin work on July 1, 2019.

Please email questions about CARLI committees or the process for selecting committee members to CARLI Support.

The ACRL Instruction Section (IS) and ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee (SLILC) invite volunteers for a new Framework for Information Literacy Sandbox Committee in the Instruction Section.

The creation of this committee marks the hand off of the stewardship of the Sandbox from SLILC to IS. The Sandbox was created by the Framework for Information Literacy Advisory Board in 2016. While the Sandbox has been stewarded by a SLILC project team since 2017, IS has a large pool of knowledgeable volunteers who can manage, assess, and improve this important tool as an ongoing project from year to year.

If you are interested in volunteering for this committee, please fill out this form by April 19, 2019. Because this recruitment is happening alongside our usual appointment cycle, the form provides an opportunity to indicate you’d prefer appointment to this committee over others you may have volunteered for in that process.

Please note: If you didn’t volunteer for other committees through the regular appointment cycle, you ARE still welcome to volunteer for this committee through the form, but you must be a current Instruction Section member.

The committee will be chaired by Donna Witek, who has been leading the project. This will ensure continuity in the transition of the project and onboarding of new committee members.

We are looking for Instruction Section members who are interested in the committee’s charge, which is:

To maintain, assess, develop, and promote the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Sandbox website as ACRL’s primary platform and repository for sharing and discovering information literacy teaching and learning resources in all formats, providing access to materials created by librarians in the field. This committee is responsible for the vision and growth of the Sandbox as an integral resource for those who teach information literacy.

This work will be carried out by a number of subcommittees within the larger committee, with membership to be determined by the committee’s leadership.

We will be looking to appoint librarians and library staff that represent a diverse set of interests, institutions, and backgrounds. As with all Instruction Section committees, no conference attendance is required and work will be done online both synchronously and asynchronously. No experience with the Sandbox is necessary to serve on the committee. This committee may start its work before Annual 2019, but its start date will depend on the outcome of the appointments process.

Again, if you’re interestedplease fill out this form by April 19, 2019.

Is your library incorporating the Framework for Information Literacy into your First Year programs in innovative ways?

The ACRL Instruction Section Best Practices Committee (http://www.ala.org/acrl/is/acr-insilbest) wants to hear from you!

The committee would like to showcase how different institutions (e.g., community colleges, four-year colleges or universities, etc.) engage with first-year students.  In particular, we are interested in integrated or distributed approaches to information literacy instruction. These approaches typically offer non-credit bearing experiences (e.g. course-related instruction, badges, co-curricular activities, etc.) that intentionally develop research skills by engaging faculty as partners to blend concepts into a college or university curriculum.

If you’d like to showcase your program, please e-mail me a brief description of it, at jmb7609@psu.edu. A member of the Committee will follow up with you in early 2019.

Thanks so much for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you!
