Awards Task Force

Discussion Here we go!

by Penny Beile on Fri, Jul 29, 2016 at 12:36 pm

Greetings all,

First, thank you for your time and interest in serving on this taskforce.  Now that we're getting started we'll move fairly quickly this fall to produce a draft report to Chase by end of October.  From there the draft goes to the Board (midwinter review) and then we'll finish up our charge next spring. 

Greetings all,

First, thank you for your time and interest in serving on this taskforce.  Now that we're getting started we'll move fairly quickly this fall to produce a draft report to Chase by end of October.  From there the draft goes to the Board (midwinter review) and then we'll finish up our charge next spring. 

Chase and I have been in touch as bit since the Annual Conference and we have drafted a timeline and - if amenable to you - a scope of work for the group.  We'll discuss this at our first meeting, but essentially thoughts are to survey current and recent past award committee chairs to seek their input.  Also, an environmental scan of ACRL awards policies and processes would be useful, and perhaps procedures from one or two other ALA divisions for comparison.

To get started I've asked Elois Sharpe to arrange a virtual meeting for Aug 11, 3 pm Eastern (2 pm Central, and so forth).  I'll send connect information once we get it, and hope that many or all of you can attend.  If not, I'll send a summary of the discussion and seek volunteers for remaining tasks.  Additional meetings are planned for Aug 25 and Sept 29, same time, if you'd like to plan ahead.

At the first meeting we'll discuss scope of work and timeline and seek volunteers for next steps.  Ideas beyond a survey and environmental scan are very welcome.  Please come with ideas!  In preparation for the Aug 11 meeting, it would be helpful to review the taskforce charge and the attached document that summarizes information about the division and section awards.  Many thanks to Chase for pulling together this excellent document!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to post to Connect or ask me directly.

And again, I look forward to working with each of you on this important committee,

Penny
