Latest correspondence from 12/2/2016:

Dear ULA LIRT member,

a much belated welcome to the Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) from your chair Anne Diekema!

Apparently the member list is not up to date so if you do not want to get emails regarding LIRT, please reply to this message with the word “unsubscribe” in your message.

There are two main things I would like to achieve as LIRT chair this year.

1) Formalize this instruction round table by documenting its mission and goals and creating a governance structure that creates continuity so not every new chair has to figure things out from scratch. I envision having a Chair and Vice-Chair (Chair elect) and possibly other positions so LIRT can become more viable. I’d also like to brainstorm a more long-term agenda and activities for this round table.

2) Organize a social event early in 2017 (probably in the SLC area) where LIRT members can get to know each other and where interested members can give lightning talks about the state of library instruction in their organizations.

If you are interested in getting actively involved in #1 and/or #2, please respond to this message stating which area you would like to get involved in.

Looking forward to hearing from you!


Anne Diekema, LIRT chair
