Body to which the group reports: Board of Directors

The CARLI Instruction Committee works with the CARLI staff and members to encourage cooperation and collaboration in the development, of effective programs of user and staff instruction that benefit all CARLI member libraries. The committee will identify and address issues of critical concern and best practices for instruction librarians and information literacy programs. The Instruction Committee may also assist CARLI staff with testing, documentation and training for consortial library tools. The Instruction 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 Instruction Committee acknowledges historical, structural, and systemic injustice, values the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will ensure that CARLI’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is embedded in their work. 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.
