Update from ALA Annual 2017 meeting
Julie reported that it was a very short 5 minute meeting just to say that the STS Plan for Excellence Report was submitted
Plan our meeting for ALA Annual 2017
We have a room for ALA Annual during All Committees if we need it
Plan our approach to the 2016-2017 report of STS activities advancing the ACRL Plan for Excellence
Each of us signed up for 2-3 committees to work with directly. Request goes out in May 2017 the committees respond and we collect in June to draft and file our report with ACRL. Note: ACRL goals have changed from last year, remind committees of this.
Keep an eye on broad issues affecting the STS Organization
We will update the STS Manual. John will contact the co-chairs of Membership & Recruitment to see if they are continuing the “A Day in the Life of X Committee” this year and how are they gathering information from committees. We will send STS-C a general message about this project before ALA Midwinter with these possible questions:
What is the committee’s Scope, Size, Connections to other groups, Meetings (where, when, how often), Challenges, Goals, Work to be accomplished?
Would a planning document at the beginning of the year help? Similar to what the Instruction Section committees use
What other information would help your committee operate each year and transfer knowledge between years?
