About the KYVL-LIRT Task Force

The Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) of the Kentucky Library Association (KLA) has agreed to partner with KYVL in the creation of shareable information literacy instruction based on resources available through KYVL, particularly as it applies to students transitioning from K12 to postsecondary education. KYVL resources are available to nearly 80 percent of Kentucky's K12 students. In addition, over 50 Kentucky postsecondary institutions include KYVL databases among their resources.

In September 2018, the KYVL Leadership Team (LT) approved creation of an ad hoc KYVL-LIRT Task Force. The group began meeting in October.

Charge / tasking

The tasking of the KYVL-LIRT Task Force (F18-19) is to:

  • Identify information literacy needs for students transitioning to postsecondary education in Kentucky
  • Identify priorities for information literacy instruction of Kentucky's K12 students
  • Prioritize development of instructional materials
  • Create instructional materials based on KYVL resources for preparing Kentucky's students for a successful transition to postsecondary education research

Revised 11.30.18

Make up of the task force

Most members of the task force are members of KLA's Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT), KYVL staff or Leadership Team. The chair is also a member of LIRT. Individuals who are not members of LIRT may be invited to participate upon recommendation of the KYVL Leadership Team or task force.

Target size for the task force is approximately 12 to 15 members. The task force is authorized to create subcommittees as needed.
