LAMP Executive Committee

The LAMP Executive Committee consists of both elected and ex-officio members.

LAMP’s Executive Committee consists of three institutional representatives selected from the full LAMP Committee, one ex-officio voting member from the Library of Congress, and the CRL coordinator as nonvoting member. The Executive Committee’s three institutional representatives serve for staggered three-year terms, and one new member is chosen at each annual meeting.
