Body to which the group reports: Board of Directors

The CARLI Public Services Committee works with the CARLI staff and members to encourage cooperation and collaboration in the development, enhancement and dissemination of models of public service that benefit all users of CARLI member libraries. The committee will identify efficient and cost effective best practices. The Public Services 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.
