In the last few years GODORT has begun to take advantage of numerous different communication tools. At the moment, GODORT has an official presence in the
GODORT also has an unofficial presence on Twitter and some members of GODORT have used their personal Facebook accounts to publicize GODORT events.
Further, since 1990, GODORT has used GOVDOC-L as a venue for information sharing even though GOVDOC-L is not formally affiliated with GODORT. The sudden and overlapping profusion of tools has caused confusion among members and needs to be resolved.
We charge this committee to identify the range of GODORT communication, define appropriate roles for each of the tools above if appropriate for the purpose and to define a policy regarding member experiments that may make use of the GODORT identity.
The committee recommendations should
• support and further the intent of the GODORT communication
• facilitate communication by all GODORT members and not serve as a barrier to participation
• enhance distributed work patterns, as we are an all-volunteer organization
• maximize automated solutions where possible in order to extend the reach of GODORT-created content as widely as possible with the least amount of manual effort
• support continued experimentation with new technologies in order to expand virtual, year-round participation in GODORT
• eliminate tools if deemed appropriate
