The Task Force will make recommendations about broadening the interactions between SIMS and the campus libraries, including but not limited to:

  • internships (reference desk)
  • internships (technical services)
  • internships (instruction)
  • librarians as adjunct faculty/guest lecturers
  • librarians as research partners (co-author with faculty/SIMS students?)
  • librarians as advisors to the Dean (this would be comprised of a small group set up as an advisory council)
  • field study opportunities
  • advising the Dean about the relationship of SIMS and the library profession

The purpose of the Task Force is to facilitate communication between the Library and SIMS and also to facilitate communication between members of the library staff interested in working with SIMS.

The Task Force will submit a report to the LAUC-B Executive Committee by July 1, 2005.
