Call for Participation on the KnowNet Strategic Project Team for the 1996/1997 Access Goal The Access APT is soliciting expressions of interest for participation on the KnowNet Project. We ask that you consider the priority of strategic project work within the Library: "“It is important to remember that project team assignments become part of the primary work of the individuals appointed to those projects. Project team members and their home teams may need to negotiate ways for the team to cover some of their current responsibilities so they can devote an appropriate amount of time to the project." ” -- quoted fromSLRP’s email message of June 8, 1996 re: 1996/97 Annual Plan Project Teams. The charge to the KnowNet project team will include the following: * Design a subject oriented framework, which will be incorporated into existing library web pages, and from which selectors' subject pages will be accessed. * Coordinate, encourage, train, and support the development of subject specialists' home pages that will incorporate resources identified in the environmental survey, as well as selected quality Internet resources selected, using existing policies. Foster an environment in which, and develop a mechanism by which, continued maintenance is valued and performed. * Perform an environmental survey of knowledge bases on campus, existing in any format, and pass information to selectors for inclusion in their home pages, and/or to Project 2 (CatNet) for cataloging. The Team will be composed of 6 individuals who can collectively contribute the following knowledge, skills, abilities, and qualities: * Big picture thinking * Detail-oriented thinking * Knowledge of HTML and web page creation * Experience in locating and evaluating web resources * Strong interest in training. Stakeholder Teams: LIST, FA/H, SET, SST, UST, RAMSC While we have identified these teams as likely sources of the knowledge, skills, abilities, and qualities needed for this work, individuals on other teams may also meet the criteria for team membership. We encourage all qualified Library personnel to carefully consider the project, the nature of the work, what you could bring to the team, and .... volunteer. Please submit statements of interest by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday June 19, 1996 For additional information on the KnowNet project, please read the Access APT homepage at http://dizzy.library.arizona.edu/library/teams/access/access.htm, or contact one of the team members: Chris Kollen, Joanne Martinez, Holly Penix, Patricia Promis, Gene Spesard.
