Structure

Committees

LITS Council

Combination of Library and Information Technology Committee and Enterprise Information Committee. The Council meets two to three times per academic year.

Library and Information Technology Committee

The Committee works to ensure that library resources and information technology are used appropriately and effectively in behalf of teaching and scholarship at the College. It serves as the principal means of communication among faculty, students, administrators, and staff on all matters relating to the use of libraries and information technology in the academic program. It reviews College policies and procedures relating to libraries, information technology, and the allocation of resources related to both, and, when it deems appropriate, suggests revisions. It advises the Committee on Academic Policy, the Dean, the Vice President for Administration and Finance, and the Vice President for Libraries and Information Technology, and serves as liaison with the College community. It reports to the Faculty on changes to policies and procedures relating to libraries and information technology when deemed appropriate by the Committee or at the request of Academic Council.

Normally, the Committee shall meet once a month while the College is in session, but special meetings may be called by the Chair, or at the request of two faculty members or the Vice President for Libraries and Information Technology.
