Call for Volunteers for Discovery Primo VE and Electronic Resources Management Task Forces

At the March 2021 CARLI Board of Directors meeting the Board approved the recommendation to form two new task forces that reflect the needs identified by CARLI committees as a result of the migration to Alma Primo VE. The initial term of the task forces will be one year; terms may be extended as needed to complete their work.

Discovery Primo VE Task Force will collaborate with other CARLI committees and with the CARLI membership to identify and address the most urgent needs for optimizing the discoverability of materials in Primo VE.
E-Resources Management Task Force will advise on the whole life cycle of electronic resources from acquisitions and cataloging, to selecting how/what to add to Alma/PVE, activating, proxy issues, OpenAthens authentication, gathering usage statistics to help libraries know what and how material is being used, to deactivation/deaccession.

Membership on these task forces will include representation from affected CARLI committees, along with volunteers solicited and appointed through the volunteer process. Current and past CARLI committee members are eligible to participate on these task forces.

To volunteer, please fill out the volunteer form by April 28 to be considered for the initial task force appointments. Individuals for task forces are expected to participate fully in the task force meetings and events. To view the committee and task force charges, and the current committee rosters, visit the Board and Committee pages.
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. Task force members will officially begin work on July 1, 2021.
