Discussion Free vs. No Fee

by Larry Romans (non-member) on Tue, Jan 26, 2010 at 06:07 pm

For the Strategic Plan, when I was putting together a laundry list for one of the goals under "advocacy and public policy," I used the phrase "permanent, free access to government information."  The correct phrase (used by GODORT and the Washington Office) is "permanent, no -fee access to government information."

RBMS Scholarships Committee

 

Charge: Responsible for awarding scholarships for attendance at RBMS preconferences and other RBMS meetings.

Comment: The Scholarships Committee reviews all of the applications and makes awards in coordination with the ACRL Meeting & Special Events Planner. In determining awards, the Scholarships Committee evaluates both the applicant’s financial need and the potential impact attendance would have on the applicant’s career development. Priority is also given to candidates from professionally underrepresented groups. Several scholarships are designated for applicants of underrepresented ethnic and racial groups. This committee does its work virtually and therefore is not required to meet face-to-face; all its deliberations are confidential.

The ACRL Meeting & Special Events Planner

  • helps determine how many full and partial scholarships can be awarded each year depending on available funding
  • provides substantial administrative support in setting up the online application form
  • tabulates and distributes application information to committee members
  • issues award notifications and stipends

Composition: The committee is composed of one member nominated by the chair of the RBMS Membership & Professional Development Committee, one member nominated by the chair(s) of the RBMS Diversity Committee, and one member nominated by the chair of the RBMS Budget & Development Committee, along with any other members the vice-chair / chair-elect may wish to appoint. The members appointed by nomination will serve as ex officio members on the originating committee, unless they are already current members of the originating committee. The Scholarships Committee chair, appointed by the vice/chair - chair/elect, is normally expected to have had previous experience awarding RBMS scholarships. This committee does its work virtually and therefore is not required to meet face-to-face; all its deliberations are confidential.

Coordination: Chairs of Budget & Development, Diversity, and Membership & Professional Development; ACRL Meeting & Special Events Planner
