Fenway Library Organization: Committees


The success of The Fenway Libraries Organization relies on the collaboration of its Member Libraries through the Committee system. Committees are composed of interested representatives from each library and meet on a monthly basis to discuss ongoing issues, address developing concerns, or collaborate on new initiatives. Committee members represent their libraries interest to the greater FLO community and are responsible for relaying decisions or topic for discussion back to their respective libraries.  Committees are open to FLO member library staff only. 

Access Services
The Circulation and ILL Committees and Public Services have merged into Access Services. This group coordinates Interlibrary lending policies in Voyager and the Commonwealth Catalog for the FLO member libraries.
The E-Selectors Committees pertain to purchasing e-resources as a consortium. There is an E-Selector Committee for full members and an E-Selector Committee for affiliate members.
The FLO Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility (IDEA) Committee establishes and steers IDEA goals and priorities in coordination with FLO Board.
The Liaisons committee is made up of representatives of full and affiliate member libraries.
The Preservica committee focuses on the implementation and use of Preservica for storage, preservation, and access of digital archives.
Quality Control
The Quality Control Committee upholds the integrity of the shared catalog. Members work together to interpret and apply cataloging rules so that the holdings of FLO libraries are reflected accurately.
