The Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois is seeking volunteers to serve on advisory committees. The application period will close on Wednesday, May 4, at 5:00 PM CDT. Volunteers chosen will serve a three-year term, July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2025. 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. You can find more information including the committee charge from the committee directory.

To volunteer, please complete the volunteer form by May 4.  To be considered for appointment, you must fill out this 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. Committee members are not routinely reappointed.

Forms submitted by May 4 will be considered for initial FY 2023 appointments. The list of all volunteers will be retained until March 1, 2023, and it will be used to fill vacancies if 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 by web conferencing 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
  • Discovery/Primo VE Committee
  • E-Resources Management Committee
  • Instruction Committee
  • Open Educational Resources Committee
  • Preservation Committee
  • Public Services Committee
  • Resource Sharing Committee
  • Technical Services Committee

The CARLI staff will make appointments to be approved by the Senior Director and the Executive Committee of the CARLI Board of Directors no later than June 8, 2022.

Please send questions about CARLI committees/task forces or the process for selecting volunteers to CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu.

  • How are academic libraries responding to the need to change?
  • Are we inherently reactive, or are we ready to transform as needed to meet the future demands of our communities?

Discussion topics might include the following.

  • Future plans for public services
  • Are we reactive, proactive, or pre-emptive?
  • Transformations to library spaces and services emerging from justice, equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion (JEDAI) work
  • Increasing online content and collections

Please bring your thoughts, questions, insights, and experiences to share with others! This conversation will be moderated by members of the ACRL ULS Future of University Libraries Discussion Group.
