The Access Services Subcommittee will serve as an instrument of Florida’s State University Libraries (SUL) Public Services Planning Committee (PSPC) to provide input relating to all aspects of resource sharing and circulation, course reserves, shelving management, and other related services among the SUS libraries.
The subcommittee will be responsible for obtaining and sharing comprehensive knowledge, articulating needs, and making recommendations for service improvements in all areas of Access Services. Specific objectives include the following:
• Carry out activities as assigned by PSPC
• Serve as a round table for open discussion and sharing of information and experiences regarding various aspects of Access Services systems and policies
• Serve as a resource group for current developments and trends in resource sharing and circulation services
• Provide, when necessary, SUL wide statistics for comparison of circulation and resource sharing services
• Aid in the implementation of new SUL Access Services cooperative services
• Present recommendations and proposals to PSPC
• Provide a quarterly report to PSPC
The Subcommittee consists of one locally appointed voting representative from each SUL institution. If institutions have more than one library as part of their organization, it would be a local decision as to how that vote is decided. One FCLA employee will participate as an ex-officio member.
When the subcommittee meets either in person or virtually, attendance is open to all interested parties. Should the subcommittee member be unable to attend meetings, a local substitute or alternate may be designated. Members may serve for differing lengths of time, based on the needs of their institution.
Subcommittee members will elect an incoming Chair by the end of each calendar year. The Chair-elect will assist the current Chair and take the role of Chair the following year.
The Chair will report on the Subcommittee’s activities at the PSPC monthly meetings.
