V. New Business
Dominique Turnbow distributed the draft call for proposals for the upcoming SCIL Works mini-conference. The theme is "Putting Theory into Practice: The 'Why' Behind Instructional Strategies." Prospective dates for the event were discussed. The call for proposals and publicity for the event will be distributed on a timeline very similar to the one used in 2006.
B. SCIL Elections
Katy French distributed a timeline for the 2007 SCIL Elections and the form for the candidates' statements. Nominations for the offices of Vice-chair/Chair-elect, Secretary, and Registrar will be accepted until October 12. Candidates and voters must be CARL members.
C. SCIL Facebook
Angela Boyd contacted Debbi Renfrow with a suggestion that SCIL use Facebook to reach out to library school students. Boyd was not in attendance at the meeting and discussion was tabled after attendees raised questions about the best ways to use Facebook for promoting SCIL. More details of this suggestion will be sought.
After discussion, the attendees agreed that an
Assessment Repository would not work if it were to be maintained by an ad hoc
alternatives to this idea included developing an appointed or elected steering
committee position with the responsibility for maintaining a peer reviewed
Assessment Repository or using Facebook or similar networking sites to allow
librarians to list themselves as contacts on the subject of assessment. No immediate plan was made for future
