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
  • patience
  • a sense of humor

It also helps to have a supportive IT department and the help of other librarians.
