6.        CRS Standards Committee charge review

The CRS Policy & Planning committee has asked us examine our committee charge to determine (1) if it is the most recent charge for your committee; and (2) if this charge is different from what the committee is actually doing.  Our committee charge is available on the ALA website at:


To provide input on the process of creating and revising information-related standards and related best practices and guidelines, including input on ISO and NISO technical standards and recommended practices via the ALA NISO representative; to offer forums for the continuing resources community about developing and revised standards, best practices or guidelines and their application; to develop and maintain active channels of communication with organizations which create and maintain relevant standards, practices or guidelines; to continuously develop and coordinate standards activities with relevant committees and other interested groups within the American Library Association.
