User Education Committee

Any review of the University Library's information literacy and library instruction programs must include highlighting the service of those who give their time and talent to the User Education Committee. Existing in some form or another since at least 1986, this is a long-standing group! We meet monthly to consider a wide range of topics, initiatives, and activities - all documented in meeting minutes, which we try and post within a week of each meeting.

Here is the group's current charge: "The User Education Committee provides guidance and advice to the Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction and the University Library by formulating and reviewing plans, goals, priorities, strategies, policies and procedures related to user education; identifying temporary and ongoing instructional issues; promoting awareness of and participation in information literacy activities within the Library and the University as a whole; gathering information and encouraging research and discussion about information literacy, information seeking, and user education; creating and assisting with instructional development programming; and responding to requests for assistance or advice about user education and information literacy issues."

We also have a number of working groups working on specific projects.
