More ASEE-ELD Liaisons needed

May 12, 2004 by

The ELD Liaisons Program has openings for 2-year term liaisons to:

  • SLA PAM Division
  • SLA Engineering Division
  • ACRL STS Division
  • American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T), Scientific & Technical Information (STI) Division (position reposted)

The Duties:
The most important job of the liaison is to communicate between ELD and the other organization and division to keep BOTH groups informed about the projects, goals and activities of the other, and to look for opportunities for collaboration between the two groups. Liaisons are expected to communicate in a number of ways, as appropriate to each group (speaking up at business meetings, talking to appropriate committee chairs, writing listserv emails, etc). In addition, the liaison writes an ELD newsletter article summarizing the highlights of the ASIS&T annual meeting, focusing on information of interest to ELD. This article is also posted on the web.

The Requirements:
To be considered you must be a member of both ELD and the other organization and division. You need to be able to commit to attending at least the annual meeting of BOTH organizations every year for the two years of your term. You need to be able to fulfill the duties as outlined above.

To be considered, send an email to Christy Hightower before June 11th. Terms are to begin January 1, 2005 with the exception of the ASIST position. An immediate appointment might be possible to allow the liaison to plan to attend the ASIST annual conference in November 2004.
