Goals 2013-2014

Tags: Goals | 2014

Posted by previous chair Ellen Keith on July 16, 2013

Status of goals as of July 16:

  1. After in-person meeting at Annual, we came up with some potential questions for the survey of reference models. Incoming chair Jason Kruse is putting them in a Google doc to share with the committee.
  2. Terri Miller, on the ad hoc committee for the state of virtual reference, shared the draft of their survey at Annual. The committee offered suggestions and that discussion will also inform what the committee does with the reference survey.

Status of goals as of December 11, 2013

  1. A team made up of members from ERUS and Virtual Reference Services Committee, created a survey to assess the state of the profession in the provision of virtual reference services.  The survey was sent out in September, and the analysis of results will begin soon.
  2. A survey looking at reference service models and evaluation of service is being finalized and will be sent out to listservs before the end of the year, or just after the first of the new year.
