Volunteering opportunities at ASEE-ELD

May 26, 2005 by

The Engineering Libraries Division of ASEE is looking for Organizational Liaisons. Openings exist for liaisons to SLA, Sci Tech Division; American Chemical Society, Chem Info Division;
American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T), Scientific & Technical Information (STI) Division and SPARC (to start immediately).

The Duties:
The most important job of the liaison is to communicate between ELD and the other organization 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 other organization’s 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.

If you are interested, send an email before May 31 to Christy Hightower. The terms, except the one for SPARC, will start January 1st, 2006.
