The RUSA Reference Services Section is looking for committee volunteers. Members of RSS committees participate in a range of virtual and in-person activities. These include:
- Organizing programs
- Hosting discussion forums
- Writing and maintaining RUSA Guidelines and Professional Resources that help libraries nationally
- Developing tutorials, compiling indexes, and writing articles
If you are interested in joining a committee, complete the RUSA Volunteer Form and select RSS at the very bottom of the application. You may also contact me, the RSS vice-chair, directly.
If you are presently on an RSS committee and your term ends in 2017, please also complete a volunteer form. Maybe you want to be reappointed to the same committee or you would like to volunteer for a different committee. If so, you can indicate that on your volunteer form, or, again, you can contact me, the vice-chair.
RSS is dedicated to providing value to its members, including virtual participation. This allows the flexibility to be active in a national professional organization without the financial commitment to travel to multiple conferences. RSS committees regularly meet online and only meet once face-to-face each year at the ALA Annual Conference.
Please consider volunteering to take an active role in RUSA/RSS. It truly is rewarding.
