Committee on Library and Information Resources (CLIR)
The Committee on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) reviews and develops standards and policies relating to library resources and academic technology. CLIR fosters communication between faculty, students, and L&IT. Working with the faculty, the Committee on Instruction (COI) and other constituencies, CLIR advises the Vice President for Library and Information Technology and L&IT directors on the adequacy of programs within the university, and assist with the integration of services into university-related academic missions. Through coordination with departmental faculty representatives, the committee identifies opportunities where L&IT can assist in achieving Bucknell's academic and scholarly priorities, makes recommendations about the allocation of funds for academic technological resources, and provides input to the Vice President for Library and Information Technology on the L&IT strategic planning process. CLIR seeks to ensure that information technology and library services are appropriately incorporated into all campus-level planning activities.
