STRATEGIC PLAN ACTION ITEMS
(goal I.C Internship Roster) Division produced a list of art & design school
libraries that are willing to accept unpaid interns. This list was to be
included in the ARLIS/NA Internship Host Institution List (mentioned on the
arlisna website at
under Host Institutions). Jill Patrick
contacted Tom Greives, Chair of Professional Development Committee, in January
2002. Tom Greives responded saying he would pass the information on to the PDC
members to see who wishes to take responsibility for the list of host
institutions. Note: the list produced by ADSL has not yet been given to the PDC.
- The ADSL part is COMPLETED; PDC part is PENDING
(goal I.G Division Website) Kari Horowicz assumed responsibility for designing
the Division’s website and expects to have the work completed before our
annual meeting in St. Louis. The site will be developed to include references
and links to recommended print and electronic non-art interdisciplinary
information resources – site COMPLETED; content TO BE DEVELOPED
(goal I.E. Accreditation Roster) The Division created a list of art & design
school libraries who have been, are currently, or will be involved in the
accreditation process. This list was updated during and after our meeting in Los
Angeles and will be made available on the division Web site - COMPLETED
(goal II.D Guidelines for Poster Session Proposals) Last year, it was suggested
that the Division could provide a set of guidelines to assist Art & Design
School Libraries to propose poster sessions for the annual conference. No work
was done on this action item – still PENDING.
(goal III.A Clearinghouse of shared statistics) At the Los Angeles meeting, a
working group was established to study the issues further. The group, including
Marjorie Chenoweth, Moira Steven, Kathleen List and Nancy Blank-Bahr, was
contacted by the moderator in January and there will be either a report or
discussion at our annual meeting in St. Louis - still PENDING.
Goal - Promote the inclusion of Division members on accreditation visiting
teams. At the Los Angeles meeting, Marjorie Chenoweth, Claire Eike and Kaycee
Hale volunteered to work on this action item. The moderator contacted them in
January. Claire Eike volunteered to contact NASAD for further information and to
map a course of action. A strategy will be discussed at the meeting in St.
Louis, after which the ARLIS/NA Board will be asked to send a letter on behalf
of ADSL members to NASAD.
FOR EXECUTIVE BOARD
Poster Session Proposals (goal II.D): Should ADSL proceed with developing
guidelines for Poster Session Proposals, or has this already been done?
Internship Roster (goal I.C): The ADSL has done its work and produced a list of
ADSL members willing to accept unpaid interns. We are waiting for the PDC to
identify a person responsible for including these names on an ARLIS/NA
Internship Host Institution List. This does not yet exist but it is mentioned on
the arlisna website at
under Host Institutions.
- Accreditation Visiting Teams: The ADSL will draft a letter to NASAD after its meeting in St. Louis. The purpose of this letter is to recommend that an art & design school librarian be included on NASAD accreditation visiting teams. The ADSL will prepare a list of members willing to serve which can be attached to the letter. The plan is to bring this to the Post-Conference Board Meeting in St. Louis for approval. We would like the letter to be signed by the Moderator of ADSL and the ARLIS/NA President.
