Governance

The CBB Libraries Governing Board, comprised of the representatives of each library as designated by the library director, will oversee and provide guidance and direction for all CBB library collaborative efforts.  Each library will name its respective members. This group will meet at least twice a year and on an ad hoc basis. The Board will:

  • Provide a shared mission and vision for all CBB library collaboration within each college and with the broader library community.
  • Develop and revise CBB policies, strategic plans, and documents.
  • Oversee efforts of the various standing committees and affinity groups.
  • Approve suggestions for new initiatives coming from both inside CBB and from outside, especially when the nature of the initiative requires consensus.
  • Ensure regular communication and accountability within the consortium, standing and affinity groups.
  • Assign responsibility for oversight and maintenance of CBB public and staff websites and other CBB communications efforts.
  • Regularly review and assess the effectiveness of new and ongoing initiatives and the governance structure.
