WHELF sub-groups

WHELF has established a number of sub-groups to help provide expert advice and to support WHELF in its collaborative tasks. The WHELF subgroups are:

  • ALIS Wales (Accessible Library & Information Services)
  • Archives & Special Collections
  • Copyright
  • Learning & Teaching
  • Research
  • WHEEL (Wales Higher Education Electronic Library)
  • WHISD (Wales Higher Education Institutions Staff Development) jointly operated with HEWIT (Higher Education Wales Information Technology)

Each group has representation from WHELF member libraries and completes a terms of reference detailing membership and objectives with a Chair to convene and coordinate meetings and distribute tasks to group members. The work of the sub-groups is directed by the WHELF Action Plan and in turn the sub-groups refer any issues for discussion to WHELF.
