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.


  • 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


Clear statement of focus – June 30, 2019

Action Plan implemented – August 15, 2019 (any actionable items completed by this date.)
