Draft charges for RBMS Task Forces

We have two ACRL standards or guidelines that are up for review. Below are draft charges for the two groups, which will be appointed in the coming months.

Charlotte Brown has volunteered to chair the task force to review: Guidelines on the Selection and Transfer of Materials from General Collections to Special Collections

I will also provide paper copies of the charges at the meeting. 

 

Task Force to Review Guidelines on the Selection and Transfer of Materials from General Collections to Special Collections

ACRL policy requires each of its standards and guidelines be reviewed every five years. This task force is charged to review Guidelines on the Selection and Transfer of Materials from General Collections to Special Collections (3rd edition, 2008) and determine whether the guidelines should be (1) continued in force without change, (2) revised to address current needs, or (3) rescinded. The task force will report to the RBMS Executive Committee by the ALA Annual Meeting in 2014. If the task force determines a revision is necessary, it will draft a revision and keep the Executive Committee apprised of its progress.

Chapter 14 of ACRL’s Guide to Policies and Procedures, especially section 14.6, “Procedures for Updating Standards and Guidelines,” should be consulted.

 

Task Force to Review Competencies for Special Collections Professionals

ACRL policy requires each of its standards and guidelines be reviewed every five years. This task force is charged to review Competencies for Special Collections Professionals (2008) and determine whether the standard should be (1) continued in force without change, (2) revised to address current needs, or (3) rescinded. The task force will report to the RBMS Executive Committee by the ALA Annual Meeting in 2014. If the task force determines a revision is necessary, it will draft a revision and keep the Executive Committee apprised of its progress.
