I am appointing each of you to serve on the Web & Emerging Technologies Advisory Committee, which is a newly formed advisory committee replacing the former Working Group, with Haiwang Yuan serving as chair.
The Library Leadership Council approved the committee and its functions/responsibilities this morning. I have attached that document and list of names for you to keep.
Please rest assured that work can still be distributed by trained faculty and staff but that this group facilitates the quality control and updates for all of our extensive web pages.
Thank you for serving in this way.
