Committees and Work Groups

About committees and work groups

As a consortium of member libraries, the Kentucky Virtual Library relies on the participation of its members to accomplish its goals, and to provide input and feedback that help guide the course of the consortium. Librarians across Kentucky contribute significantly to the work of KYVL through professional service, and much of the work of KYVL is accomplished through its standing and ad hoc work groups.

Maintaining work group rosters

The Leadership Team reviews the composition of each work group, including representatives named by each constituent group (below), in an effort to ensure that membership is complete and in keeping with each group's formal outline.

In coordinating committee and work group rosters, Leadership Team members serve as liaisons to the constituencies they represent. The KYVL executive director serves as liaison for nonaffililated academic libraries and special libraries, which do not have direct representation on the Leadership Team.
