Improving Human Health and Community Vibrancy Task Force
The Improving Human Health and Community Vibrancy Task Force is charged with creating a proposal for the establishment of a program to support researchers and interdisciplinary programs working toward improving human health and community vibrancy.
Specifically, the Task Force is charged to:
- Identify human health and community vibrancy researchers and programs, and their information needs
- Identify ways the Libraries can offer assistance, information, and pedagogy opportunities to support those needs
- Identify which of the eight guiding priorities are most relevant to the Improving Human Health and Community Vibrancy strategy. https://www.uark.edu/strategic-plan/index.php#guiding-priorities
- Draft a clear statement of Libraries’ focus, i.e. policy and procedures, incorporating identified eight guiding priorities. Explain why and how initiatives will respond to each priority.
- Create and implement a plan to assess the current collection, identify gaps, and create a collection development plan based on the Human Health and Community Vibrancy programs.
- Create research guide(s), or other web presence with information and templates, including subject-specific guidance for researchers
- Develop templates, documents, and forms for researchers
