STS Virtual Member expectations
The STS Virtual Participation Task Force has set the following expectations for anyone wishing to join an STS committee as a virtual member. This information is current as of Summer 2011.
To be a virtual member of an STS committee, the following is required or recommended:
- access to and ability to use tools for virtual meetings, such as Skype, Google Docs, etc.
- a hardware setup that allows software to be downloaded and installed on the individual's computer
- determination to participate and the willingness to take initiative to find ways to contribute
- a sense of humor
It also helps to have a supportive IT department and the help of other librarians.
