The Task Force is established to, following the procedures for the review of Standards found in the ACRL Guide to Policies and Procedures Chapter 14: (1) review the SLHE, (2) review outcomes as articulated in regional accrediting association guidelines as there is increasing expectation that libraries can contribute to them, e.g., educational role, facilities, etc., (3) incorporate accreditation expectations into the draft standards as appropriate, (4) review the performance indicators for each principle and consider expanding them, (5) recommend needed changes, (6) produce a draft document incorporating these changes, (7) seek comments and input from stakeholder communities and the general ACRL membership, and (8) incorporate, as appropriate, those recommendations into the final draft.
