Janus Challenges Task Forces
Each Janus Challenge Task Force is expected to be familiar with the background materials written by the Collection Planning Committee’s Janus Challenges Working Group and to have a fundamental understanding of the original “Six Key Challenges for the Future of Collection Development” as presented by Ross Atkinson at the Janus Conference held at Cornell University in 2005. Links to these documents and resources are provided. Each Task Force is expected to review the impacts, recommendations and benchmarks for the six Janus Challenges. It is expected that the Task Forces will survey the current environment at each institution and be familiar with what is occurring nationally. Members are free to discuss any issues with those outside of a Task Force and may consider working with anyone who may be able to make a contribution. The Benchmarks provided in the Janus Challenges Working Group document were established as a way to measure progress and to keep the projects moving forward. The Recommendations are meant to be a representative, not exclusive, listing. Each Task Force is free to make changes as necessary while adhering as closely as possible to the Goal statement and reporting timeline. The overarching objective of this work is to develop a sustainable framework for greater resource sharing amongst our libraries. By creating a statewide asset between higher education institutions, efficiencies and economies of scale will surely benefit Florida’s public good.
