Since the launch of three Library Hub services back in July 2019, we have been examining the governance structure required as we continue to deliver and develop services built on the National Bibliographic Knowledgebase.
From April 2020, the Collection Management Community Advisory Board will take on a broader role, representing the community in advising Jisc on all aspects of Library Hub development. This wider scope will include discovery, metadata and related areas as well as collection management. The Board will provide oversight and advice on existing and new service developments, governance on specific community activity such as Plan M and ensure that strategic developments are informed by community needs.
To reflect this change, the Board will now be known as the Library Hub Community Advisory Board (LHCAB) and new members with appropriate expertise will join over the coming months. The Terms of Reference of the Board have been revised to incorporate the new approach.
