Body to which the group reports: Board of Directors
The CARLI Commercial Products Committee works with the CARLI staff and members to encourage cooperation and collaboration in identifying, evaluating and recommending the purchase and/or brokering of electronic information resources. The committee will identify and promulgate efficient and cost effective best practices, licensing and negotiating principles. The committee will advise on maximizing the consortium’s economies of scale and leverage in negotiations with commercial creators and third party providers of content.
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 CARLI committees and ad hoc groups, and will develop workshops, seminars, webinars, or other education opportunities to meet the needs of the membership. The committee will facilitate the development and use of statistical measures to inform decision making at both the institutional and consortial levels. The committee will prepare appropriate documentation and reports, and will submit an annual report of its activities and accomplishments to Board of Directors.
