New members of the Standards Committee were appointed by the Governing Board in August 2013:

  • Jan Richards will replace Tay Ai Cheng as representative of Division I, Library Types.
  • Clara Chu has been appointed as a liaison representative of the Governing Board (GB). Clara is Division IV Chair, by which she is a member of the current GB.

The addition of a GB liaison representative to the Committee, which is in line with other Strategic Programme Committees, is intended to improve communication between the Committee and the GB, especially during the next two years when Standards will be highlighted as a Key Initiative for IFLA.
