I think that the motion to make this committee virtual aligns with the strategic plan and provide more opportunities for ALSC members to be involved. So, I agre with the O&B motion.

I concur.

I agree with Jennifer and support this motion generally. I just want to make sure that the committee expectations for virtual participation include conference call when necessary (i.e., that members expect they may be required to participate in a conference call).  I served on a scholarship committee for the California Library Association, and while email was perfect for most of the work, a discussion was really necessary for the final decision between the two top candidates.  Conference call should be fine.

While I'm not sure that it's official yet, the ALSC Meta Task Force has unveiled (at least in draft form) a virtual forum for "Best Practices for Virtual Committee Work" on the ALSC wiki at http://wikis.ala.org/alsc/index.php/Best_Practices_for_Virtual_Committee.... Chair Jill Bickford has stressed that it is a living document that can be revised as needed.

Julie, thanks for sharing this link.  The wiki completely addresses any concerns/questions I have about expectations/communication forums for virtual participation.  It's a great document.
