Library Instruction Committee Coordinator

I returned from the Music Library Association Annual Meeting in March 2014 with several ideas about how to improve library services, mostly in the area of instruction.  It was then suggested that I enact a library instruction committee and serve as its coordinator.  Based on the interest by the other librarians employed by the Minnesota School of Business and its partners, it sounds like this idea was long overdue; over 80% of the librarians joined the voluntary committee.  In meetings we share ideas of pedagogical methods that reach students and we collaborate to find solutions to difficulties that arise, including confusion over instruction standards, frustrating classroom management, and generating excitement for instruction.  The committee has been a great experience for me and has allowed me to practice leadership using an almost flat structure.
