To work with the executive director in pursuing the vision, fulfilling the mission and promoting the values of the Kentucky Virtual Library through:
The KYVL Leadership Team (LT) serves as principal liaison between member constituencies and the Kentucky Virtual Library, and is so recognized by the KYVL's parent agency, the Council on Postsecondary Education. LT is active in overseeing strategic planning and initiatives; in guiding the work of the funding, collections and other work groups; and in communicating with KYVL membership.
The KYVL Alliance also represents KYVL membership and acts in an advisory capacity to KYVL LT.
The Leadership Team reviews the composition of each work group, including representatives named by each constituent group, 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.
The KYVL Leadership Team consists of six voting members and the KYVL executive director. Voting members must represent or work with current member institutions. LT members serve ex officio or through appointment by the constituencies they represent. Appointed members serve three-year terms that begin July 1.
Leadership Team has two officers, chair and chair elect with recorder duties. Offices rotate according to the schedule below.
