Liaisons Council

Primary Responsibilities of the CRRA Liaisons

The CRRA Member Liaisons serve as the point of contact for both individuals at the member and partner institutions and for the CRRA. The primary role of the Liaison is to serve as the communication link between the member institution and the CRRA. The Liaison acts as the local clearinghouse for CRRA information, vetting questions and disseminating information from the member institution to the CRRA and from the CRRA to the institution. For more, see Responsibilities of Representatives and Member Liaisons.

2017/18 Goals:

  • Orient and educate liaisons about CRRA and CRRA tools with three web meetings. 
  • Target ten member institutions to work closely with their local networks to encourage participation in the Value of the Portal online survey. Continue to promote the survey broadly and encourage participation.
  • Add links to the CRRA portal, Newspapers Online and the Catholic News Archive to ten member websites.

 2017/18 Accomplishments:

  • Held a webinar on resource sharing with the Membership Committee
  • Compiled and sent a monthly bulletin with member and CRRA news to the Liaisons Council.
