    This is the public announcement of ACRL Standards Committee (SC) Meeting Agenda for 2018 ALA Midwinter Meetings in Denver, CO.  SC will meet Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 1:00-2:30 pm MST in Sheraton Denver, 1550 Court Place, Room Governor’s Sq 12.  If internet connection is available, we will be joined virtually by Scott and Nancy via Google Hangouts.  We will discuss the following topics:



    1. Introduction (5 minutes)

    2. Meeting recorder volunteer? (5 minutes)

    3. Review SC Charge (Chapter 14.2.1), Tasks of the Standards Committee (Chapter 14.2.3) and Procedures of Standards Committee (Chapter 14.4), available from  http://www.ala.org/acrl/resources/policies/chapter14  (10 minutes)

    4. Progress report on annual Work Plan for SC (5 minutes)

    5. Discussions:

      1. Status updates on Tracking Sheet Assignments – all members (10 minutes)

      2. Identifying which standards and guidelines are overdue, which ones are due now, and which ones are due in the coming year (10 minutes)

      3. Listing and color coding standards and guidelines that are due to start their revision process (30 minutes)

      4. Strategies to contact committees or task forces and seek guidance from the ACRL Board (5 minutes)

      5. Virtual check-in, e.g. frequency (5 minutes)


    6. Others? (10 minutes)


    One of the key outcomes of this meeting is to come up with list of standards and guidelines that are due to start their revision process.  That's why it takes 30 minutes.  I hope every SC member will be able to attend the meeting.  Please bring your own copy of the meeting agenda and the tracking sheet that I sent out to you before New Year.


    Looking forward to seeing you in Denver or connecting you virtually via Google Handouts!

    Dear SC Members,

    Thank you so much for attending ACRL Standards Committee (SC) Meeting during 2018 ALA Midwinter Meetings in Denver, CO.  It was our first meeting that blended face to face meeting with virtual meeting via Google Hangouts.  We really appreciated that Karen Munro and Penny Beile, ACRL Vice-President and Present-Elect, also attended the meeting. 

    During the meeting, members reviewed SC charge, tasks and procedures of the SC, went over progress report on annual work plan for SC, discussed tracking sheet assignments, and identified list of standards and guidelines that were due to start their revision process. 

    At the end of the meeting, members agreed that SC would check-in virtually four times a year and our first virtual meeting is going to be May 10, 2018 via Zoom.  Attached is the detailed 2018 meeting minutes from Standards Committee during 2018 ALA Midwinter Meetings in Denver, CO.

    Thank you so much indeed!

     

    Sincerely yours,

     

    Amanda
