Member selection method: All members of the Library Executive Committee and managers selected by the AULs, Chief Technology Officer, Director of Technical Services, Director of Manuscripts & Archives, and the University Librarian. In order to keep the forum at a manageable size, it is not possible to include all unit managers. Therefore, seats on the forum will be rotated annually amongst unit managers in a department, as determined by the department heads.
