Committee Charge

Here is the current committee charge:

To explore ways of providing information and education on the subject and its problems for the profession and the people who work with this group, facilitating the use of library service by the aged, continually exploring ways of making library service to the aged more effective.

Is the language around service to "the aged" something we might want to change?  Suggestions?

To explore ways of providing information and education on the subject and its problems   for the profession and others who work with midlife and older adults, facilitating the use of library service by the aged these populations in various life stages, and continually exploring ways of making library service to the aged more effective throughout the lifespan .
