Call for CARLI Committee Volunteers

CARLI is seeking volunteers to serve on advisory committees. The application period will close on April 28 at 5:00 p.m. Terms on these committees will begin July 1, 2021. Faculty and staff members from all CARLI member libraries, with all levels of experience, are encouraged to apply.
Service on CARLI committees affords individuals a unique opportunity to use their experience and expertise to help shape the future of the consortium and its services. In 2020, due to the migration to Alma & Primo VE and the need to reevaluate the committee calls in order to realign them with our current needs, we suspended the call for volunteers for one year. As a result, CARLI committees will have a greater number of openings for terms beginning July 1, 2021, and committee terms may be two or three years. 
To volunteer, please complete the volunteer form by April 28. To be considered for appointment, you must fill out this online form even if you have previously submitted a form, or if you are a current committee member whose term is expiring and you wish to be considered again. CARLI seeks to include as many individuals and institutions as possible in committee service, so committee rosters are limited to one person from any institution. Committee members are not routinely reappointed.
Forms submitted by April 28 will be considered for initial FY 2022 appointments. The list of all volunteers will be retained until March 1, 2022 and will be used to fill vacancies if they occur.
Individuals accepting appointments to CARLI committees are expected to participate fully and actively in the work of the committee, including regular attendance at meetings and committee-sponsored events held throughout the calendar year. CARLI makes every effort to conduct the majority of committee business by web conferencing or via conference calls. However, committee service may require time and/or travel expenses for one or more in-person meetings each year.
The following CARLI committees are seeking members:

  • Collection Management Committee
  • Commercial Products Committee
  • Created Content Committee
  • Instruction Committee
  • Open Educational Resources Committee
  • Preservation Committee
  • Public Services Committee
  • Resource Sharing Committee
  • Technical Services Committee

The CARLI staff will make appointments to be approved by the Senior Director and the Executive Committee of the CARLI Board of Directors no later than June 15, 2021.
