Marmot Academic Committee (MAC)

Marmot Academic Committee -MAC (2015 - )

Purpose of the Marmot Academic Committee (MAC) 

  • Formalize communications in our messages to Marmot; develop a strong consensus;strength of purpose; Marmot has a large public library contingent--ensure that the Academics have a strong voice; empower the Academics; use the meetings to create a better means of communication between libraries and between the libraries and Marmot
  • Explore the possibility of group purchasing
  • Facilitate exchanges (of staff between libraries)
  • Develop best practices
  • Pika issues are our current priority, but do not need to be formalized in the charge as we hope to move beyond them soon

MAC meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month.  The Marmot Meetings Calendar shows meeting times, and the meeting link.
