[Ed. note: Highlights from the January committee report to the Executive Board.]

LIBRARY SCHOOL OUTREACH COMMITTEE
Sarah Sutton, Chair

We have made the following progress on our goals for 2007-08:

  • Kara Killough volunteered for and was appointed to the Committee
  • Developed information pages within our Google Group detailing contact information, previous award winners, and NASIG alumni for “ambassador” schools:
    • LSU School of Library and Information Science
    • Dominican Graduate School of Library and Information Science
    • Indiana University School of Library and Information Science
    • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science
  • Shared our contact information for “ambassador” schools with A&R in order to facilitate their efforts to promote NASIG 2008 Awards
  • Begun outreach to these schools by promoting NASIG 2008 Awards
  • Begun the process of recruiting ambassadors to:
    • Texas Woman’s University School of Library and Information Studies
    • University of North Texas School of Library and Information Science
    • University of Texas School of Information
    • University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science
    • San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science

During the spring we will:

  • Complete recruiting ambassadors for the five schools noted above
  • Develop supervisory relationships between Committee members and those new ambassadors
  • Develop a procedure by which ambassadors could step down from their duties in order to make the transition for the library school from one ambassador to another as smooth and seamless as possible
  • Continue to add to our Google Groups pages in order to share ideas, results, and materials that Committee members and/or Ambassadors have found useful in their work with library schools
  • Compare the number of award applications received from library schools with ambassadors to the number received from these schools previously and to the number received from other library schools as one method of evaluating the committee’s progress
