Shared Governance Task Force


Group Purpose

The systemwide Integrated Library System (SILS) working group was charged with governance planning for phase 4 (the implementation phase) of the project and for planning ongoing, post implementation oversight of the SILS. As work on phase 3 got underway, it become clear that SILS governance planning should not be done in isolation of the current UC Libraries Advisory Structure (UCLAS). Accordingly, the SILS working group determined that a representative task force should be charged to focus on developing SILS shared governance.
