Peer Review Committee (PRC)

About the PRC

The Peer Review Committee is the body from which five-person panels are formed to review documentation and make recommendations regarding librarian appointment, renewal, promotion-in-rank, and Librarian with Distinction recognition. As part of the interview process for librarians, the Peer Review Committee also meets with each candidate to provide an overview of the Handbook and the processes for renewal and promotion.

The PRC is elected from a pool of eligible librarians and consists of 15 members including three officers (the Chair, Chair-Elect and Past Chair). Elections are held annually for the Chair-Elect and for four regular members, each to serve a 3-year term. All librarians are eligible to vote and elections are conducted by the Librarians Assembly.
