Academic Library Members

The appointment of members from the academic library community will be by nomination and election by UK academic library directors. In order to ensure a balance of membership representing the diversity of UK academic libraries, the call for nominations may focus on underrepresented groups.  The Chair may, from time to time, co-opt members to ensure that the diversity of academic libraries is fully represented.

The outgoing Chair and Director of Jisc Collections will nominate the new Chair from the existing membership.  The members will be asked to endorse this nomination.

There is currently a vacancy on the group and a call has been issued for nominations, the individual will be selected through an election.

Each member's constituency is listed in the dropdown below their photos.  For ease of viewing, a full list of all members and their constituencies is also available on one page.

To keep updated on relevant news, please sign up to your constituency member's email list.

Term of Membership

Academic library members will be selected on a rolling basis in a two stage process involving their nomination and election via vote of Library Directors to be held as appropriate.

Organisations with their own representatives on EIRWG will select those representatives according to their own criteria.

Membership will be reviewed every two years

A member will be considered as having stood down if:

  • The member has two un-notified absences in a row ("un-notified" means the member did not call a reasonable contact in the organisers before the upcoming meeting to indicate they would be absent)
  • The member has three notified absences in a row
