- Discussion Groups
Informal discussion groups may be formed to meet under the auspices of the Section during the AALL Annual Meeting, provided that at least five (5) OBS-SIS members request it and the OBS-SIS Chair approves it.
Unlike the standing committees, these discussion groups generally will not work on projects during the year, nor will any members be appointed to the group, although the OBS-SIS Chair does seek a volunteer to serve as ‘facilitator" to help lead the discussion.
The Groups are encouraged to summarize their discussion for a report to be published in the September "convention issue" of TSLL.
In 1995, OBS-SIS had one active discussion group, the Research Roundtable, which is a discussion group formed jointly with the Technical Services SIS. The Reference Roundtable met for several years but was disbanded in 1995.
