Committees
Recognizing that the library community encompasses a vast spectrum of interests, specializations, and disciplines, SWON Libraries hosts Committees where our members come together to work towards a common goal.

A SWON Libraries’ Committee is active over a period of months or years as the committee members collaborate to explore and take action on issues of interest. Committees are open to all Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky library staff.  

How Do I Join A SWON Committee?

Committees are open to all Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky library staff. See the list or our committees below and see our calendar to register for an upcoming meeting.

Innovators

The Innovators Committee was created in 2013 to foster:

  • Greater understanding of innovation, its generation, its language, and its usefulness
  • Sharing of innovative practices, processes, and programming throughout Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky Libraries

If you'd like to join us in these plans or to learn more about the group, please contact Melanie at melanie@swonlibraries.org or call (513) 751-4422 x 12.

Staff Training Committee

The Staff Training Planning Committee is responsible for planning and executing our annual (sometimes bi-annual if we’re really into it!) Support Staff Symposium. The Symposium is a full day of CE with a topical theme meant to provide the highest quality local training and career development for support staff in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

Wondering what we do? Want to help? Send your questions or contact our convener, Katy McBryan, mcbryank1@nku.edu

Strategic Planning Committee

This committee develops a two-year strategic plan for SWON Libraries. They convene every other year to begin working on the next plan. For example, the new plan for calendar years 2017 and 2018 will be voted on at the April (2016) Executive Board Meeting. Supporting Membership discussion and vote will take place at the April Membership Meeting (2016). Other duties may be assigned to this committee as deemed necessary by the President.

If you'd like to join us in these plans or to learn more about the group, please contact Melanie at melanie@swonlibraries.org or call (513) 751-4422 x 12.
