The Academic Outreach Committee's charge is to develop and maintain a community of practice to share information and foster best practices in campus outreach for academic librarians.
The Academic Outreach Committee on ALA Connect: Post and find agendas, minutes, and committee happenings.
Please note that you will need to sign in to ALA Connect using your regular ALA web site username and password to access ACRL ULS committee content.
We currently offer an online discussion series for librarians to discuss issues, ideas, and best practices related to academic outreach. Go to the ULS Academic Outreach Committee YouTube channel to view videos in the discussion series.
A variety of roles and responsibilities are required to run the discussion series:
We anticipate that other projects and work will grow out of these virtual conversations or in-person conference meetings. Hopefully as we develop a successful workflow and everyone becomes comfortable with the process, that will allow more time for other committee work.
The committees use this online form to gather requests for promotion of committee and discussion group activities.
