Committee Charge

The purpose of the Footnotes Committee is to solicit and produce content for the NMRT Blog [(http://www.nmrt.ala.org/notes/)].

History of the Committee

Footnotes began publication in 1971 and was published quarterly until.January 2016. It succeeded "Newsnotes" (1966-1971) as the official newsletter for NMRT (then JMRT). The added responsibility of producing a member news column was added due to the May 2009 Disbanding of the Membership Relations Committee. In January of 2016, the newsletter Footnotes was retired in place of the NMRT Blog in order to enable more timely access to articles by NMRT members.

Major Responsibilities

  • Gather information and articles for the NMRT Blog.
  • Prepare member news article (responsibility added due to disbanding of the Membership Relations Committee)
  • Submit at least one article per month for publication to the NMRT Blog.

Procedures Used to Accomplish Major Responsibilities

  • Notify members of the Executive Board, including all committee chairs and liaisons, of the deadlines for information with a copy in writing to remind them.
  • Type and edit the copy for use in each issue.
  • Email listservs to solicit articles for the Blog. If no articles are submitted, one member of the committee a month will be assigned with producing content for the NMRT Blog.
  • Create and upload web files to ALA Connect for editing.
  • Communicate with the NMRT Secretary to put content on the NMRT Blog for online distribution.

Committee Composition and Term(s) of Office

LLAMA believes that librarians in all types of libraries foster continuous individual discovery and learning and serve an essential function in a democratic society. Serving as the foremost professional organization committed to developing present and future library leaders, LLAMA provides members with knowledge, skills, resources, and tools that help members foster individual and organizational excellence in library leadership, administration, and management. LLAMA and our member leaders at all levels seek to create and develop innovative communities that foster diversity and inclusion. Developing present and future leaders in a holistic manner is part of our commitment to the enduring value of libraries in society and the people and communities we serve. Below are the foundational statements of our association.

Notes from Special Meeting of the 2016-2017 LLAMA/Assessment Section/Resources Committee

 

Saturday, June 25, 2016, 9:30-10am, at ALA Annual Conference in Orlando 

Attending: Jeffrey Belliston, Rich Paustenbaugh, Rachael Elrod, Helen Look, John Wiggins.

This was an unofficial meeting and all other members RSVP’ed their regrets in advance.

John Wiggins served as chair and recorder.

1. Meeting begin with a short round of introductions and individual review of roster provided by Assessment Section Chair Anne Cooper Moore.

1.1.  With five out of eleven members present, committee noted intention was to start discussions to share with full committee for further discussion and decisions in early July.

1.2.  ACTION ITEM: John will send all members a Doodle poll for our first meeting (conference call).

1.3.  ACTION ITEM: At first full meeting, members will review initial conversations, continue discussions, plan and implement a move to finalize leadership, and identify how we will explore which program opportunities to pursue.

1.4.  ACTION ITEM: John will ask members to discuss/confirm a regular monthly conference call to manage committee progress.

2.   Leadership: Discussion addressed co-chair and vice-chair leadership models:

2.1.  The co-chair system denotes two leaders selected to share leadership duties and share responsibilities for only the current year.

2.2.  The vice-chair system denotes two-year-long leadership commitments that overlap, with the vice-chair from one year becoming chair the following year and a new vice-chair selected.

2.3.  Among those present, five of five supported consideration of a vice-chair model with two of the five also comfortable with the co-chair model. 

2.3.1.     Among the three who didn’t voice support for the co-chair model, the main notes were experiences where only one co-chair was actually active.

2.3.2.     Support for the vice-chair model focused on managing succession of leadership to ensure success of longer-term program planning processes.

2.4.  Two members present expressed interest in serving as leaders. We’ll see if there is additional interest from other members at our first full meeting and decide a process for selection.

2.4.1.     Note: members who are currently listed as serving on the Resources Committee for one year (completing the second year of their term under the revised organization) are definitely eligible to renew for up to two more service periods (that is, to serve an additional four years) and so all members are eligible to serve as vice chair this year/chair next year. This was confirmed by Anne Cooper Moore immediately after our meeting

3.  Scope of Resources Committee’s charge. Discussion focused on our committee’s charge and identifying which topics are included in our charge and which topics we might need to request clarification about.

3.1.  Facilities (Resources) vs. Library spaces (Services). In an earlier conversation, MAES Executive Committee members suggested that we might observe this as facilities equivalent to available building spaces, and library spaces (in the charge for the Services Committee) might focus on services supported within the spaces.  Currently, the committee interprets this to mean that, for example, assessment of electrical outlets might be in scope for our committee, as well as general study spaces (furnishings, arrangement) and self-service equipment such as laptop kiosks.

3.2.  Resources in general.  Discussion noted that we might assume that broader library resourcing, such as library budget and library staff, are included in our charge.

3.3.  Overlap/opportunities with other committees.  Members noted that there is overlap between our committee’s charge and those of other committees, and these provide opportunities for collaboration on programming:

3.3.1.     “Facilities”—with LLAMA BES (Building & Equipment (?) Section)

3.3.2.     “Discovery Tools” and “Websites” with LITA

3.3.3.     Discussion group format events with our Assessment Section Members-at-Large who manage the Hot Topics in Assessment discussion at MidWinters (or on our own at Annuals and/or MidWinters)

3.3.4.     Publication outputs with LLAMA (contact: Fred Reuland)

3.3.5.     Webinar outputs with LLAMA’s Continuing Education Committee

3.4.  ACTION ITEM: John will confirm some of the above with the Assessment Section Executive Committee and report back.

4.  Brainstorming program approaches/committee outputs.

4.1.  Assessment of Resource Committee:

4.1.1.     What impact do we hope to make on the Assessment Section/LLAMA/ALA?

4.1.2.     How will we know if we are successful or not?  What does success look like?

4.2.  Inclusion of opportunities for new professionals

4.2.1.     When specific program initiatives are identified, advertise in LLAMA’s New Professionals Section (NPS) for an individual to associate/support each program/project to gain experience and to learn about the Resources Committee.

4.3.  Broadening LLAMA and Assessment Section participation beyond academic librarians.  How can we improve scope and appeal of programs and volunteer opportunities?  Ideas generated included:

4.3.1.     Ensure program descriptions focus on and attract other participants

4.3.1.1.          Use language that speaks to other settings—for example, public libraries do assessment but don’t necessarily use the word assessment to refer to that work

4.3.2.     Develop programs that employ a panel with speakers from different settings/perspectives

4.4.  Identify best practices.  Ideas generated included:

4.4.1.     Research “resources” topics together as a group

4.4.1.1.          Identify case studies

4.4.1.2.          Develop bibliographies

4.4.1.3.          Track emerging practices

4.4.1.4.          Review what other groups are doing

4.4.1.4.1.                PLA (public libraries)

4.4.1.4.2.                SLA (special libraries)

4.4.1.5.          What isn’t covered and needs covering (assessment gaps)?

4.5.  Promote/spotlight best practices, techniques, themes

4.5.1.     Individual/teams who have done good work

4.5.2.     Examples of good work

4.5.3.     “Things are changing”-what is new or what is different
