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.
