Working groups are commissioned by the LOUIS Board to address emerging needs and concerns within the consortium. Each working group is given a specific charge - area to investigate - and deadline to work toward. This framework provides the consortium a formal network for exchanging ideas and problem-solving, while increasing efficiency.
Each working group is comprised of volunteers from within the membership. These individuals may step forward because they have a general interest in the topic under investigation, want to serve the consortium in a more formal capacity, or are experts in a particular area.
Working groups are formed as the need arises. If you would like to get involved, watch for the call on our discussion list(s) and email the listed contact.
