Body to which the group reports: Board of Directors

The CARLI Collection Management Committee works with the CARLI staff and members to identify, develop, and encourage cooperation and collaboration in the development and management of collection in all formats and media. This work is done in order to maximize the accessibility of resources shared, and to capitalize on the depth and breadth of information resources accessible to student, faculty and staff and all member institutions. The committee will identify innovations, including efficient and cost effective best practices, for the management of statewide collections. The Collection Management Committee will collaborate with other CARLI committees and ad hoc groups to discuss issues of common interest and to facilitate joint program planning.

The committee may be assigned projects by the Board of Directors, or may independently develop projects and initiatives within the scope of its charge or in collaboration with other ad hoc groups. The committee will identify educational and training needs within its scope of responsibility and its collaboration with other committees, and will develop workshops, seminars, webinars, or other education opportunities to meet the needs of the membership. The committee will prepare appropriate documentation and reports, and will submit an annual report of its activities and accomplishments to Board of Directors.
