I am writing to confirm the email conversation we had this month that the ACRL Board of Directors, at its June 27, 2015, meeting in San Francisco, CA, approved a motion to dissolve the AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy. This action was taken at the request of AASL who is interested in continuing to work with ACRL but in its strategic planning decided that standing committees were not the most effective means to accomplish this.  We may well hear from AASL about a joint task force to accomplish specific, targeted initiatives. AASL and ACRL remain committed to the importance of the K-20 continuum of information literacy and appreciate all of your efforts to work on this. ACRL’s Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee will be working with you to move the management of any web resources you have created to that committee.

 

On behalf of the ACRL Board of Directors, I would like to express appreciation for your leadership of the AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy.

Discussion Dissolution of AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Committee

by Jennifer Fabbi on Wed, Jun 17, 2015 at 03:15 pm

As ACRL co-chair of the AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Committee, I recently received the following message from Mary Ellen Davis, Executive Director of ACRL:

As ACRL co-chair of the AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Committee, I recently received the following message from Mary Ellen Davis, Executive Director of ACRL:

"I am writing to let you know that AASL has completed a strategic review of its structure and will be disbanding the AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Committee. This is not a reflection on the members of the committee but rather a desire to create task forces charged with specific projects rather than to have standing committees. The ACRL Board will also vote on dissolving the committee at the Annual Conference. The committee would conclude at the close of the annual Conference."

I have shared this information with Mary Keeling, AASL co-chair. While we find this action disappointing, it has been over a year since we have had full committee membership, so it has been difficult to complete work as a committee. Mary and I have developed a plan for finishing up/transferring the work of this committee, including:

1. Posting this message to ALA Connect and canceling our in-person meeting for ALA Annual in San Francisco. 

2. Working with the Student Learning and Information Literacy to develop a transition plan for the K-20 IL Toolbox that is currently hosted by this committee. This may include shifting responsibility for this resource, leaving it posted for an interim period of time and removing it, or removing the resource immediately. 

3. Terminating conversations about co-sponsoring program proposals for ALA Annual 2017. 

Please contact me if you have questions.
