Recommendations for the Scholarly Commons Leadership Team
Scott Walter had asked for recommendations for a subject librarian representative
for the Scholarly Commons Leadership Team, a committee with purpose of defining the scholarly
commons and facilitating its implementation. Lisa suggested that at least two or three
librarians be appointed: one from reference, one from the arts and humanities, and one from the
social sciences, as this would provide more representation of the library and facilitate buy-in
across the Library. Names and alternates were discussed by the committee and Lisa will
forward them to Scott.
Library Assessment Working Group
Tina Chrzastowski reported that the assessment group is meeting tomorrow.
They are still waiting for IRB approval for the LibQual+ survey but plan to administer the survey
from March 20
th to April 10
th. ARL assessment conference proposals are due soon but she is not sure if funding will
be available for those who want to attend the conference.
Karen Hogenboom discussed misrepresentation of information about the learning
commons in the scholarly commons overview and asked if the information could be corrected.
Lisa agreed to ask Scott to remove the leading phrase “Like the Learning Commons” in the second
paragraph as it states that the Learning Commons is a facility, which it is not.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:30 am.
