Science and Technology Section (STS): About Our Committees

Whether you are a chair, committee member, or prospective member, this is your go-to resource for information about STS committees

Charge

To provide long-range direction for the section by assessing implementation of strategic plan activities, reviewing suggestions from the membership, and proposing new activities for the section. Solicit ACRL strategic plan activity reports from STS committees, discussion groups, and task forces. Members of the committee serve as liaisons to other STS committees, discussion groups, and task forces for evaluation of strategic plan activity. In conjunction with the STS Chair, review strategic planning activities within STS and draft the annual Plan for Excellence Report to submit to ACRL. Provide a yearly report and recommendations on the section's strategic planning activities to STS Executive Committee and STS Council. Propose changes in governance procedures and revise the section manual as necessary.

Membership

This committee usually has 8-10 members. See the current roster here. It helps to have enough members to liase with all other STS committees and discussion groups.

Responsibilities

The Organization & Planning Committee collects input from STS committees, discussion groups, and task forces and then drafts the annual Plan for Excellence Report to submit to ACRL.
