[globaloutlookDH-l] Terms of reference, redux

HI Neil, and all,

I’ve been wondering (as my earlier mails will attest) about interrelation with ADHO structures as well.

This suggestion sounds like a very positive one – a solid way both to ensure that ADHO and GO::DH are working together in areas of shared concern, but more specifically in identifying areas where ADHO could be of greatest assistance.  I think here of the very positive outreach that our Admissions Ctte, and Harold in particular, has done in past.  It seems like a natural fit.

All best

Some further thoughts on structure: what if GO::DH were a special interest group that reports to the Admissions Committee, which would then channel follow up to the appropriate ADHO committee? This would give GO::DH a clear place and reporting line within the overall ADHO structure and would help to ensure that ADHO is speaking with one consistent voice to the new communities it engages.

We might then think about the work of GO::DH as locating dh activity in particular geographical areas not currently involved with ADHO, surveying that activity, identifying key contact people and institutions, ascertaining their interest in engaging with ADHO, and then making the handshake to Admissions.

Would that make sense?

Good idea! Maybe even a combination: invite COs to appoint representatives to go::dh and have a go::dh observer on relevant committees.

Compared to most people on the list I am quite ignorant about how the ADHO works, but the above sounds like a good solution, considering global outreach is part of the agenda of different COs. ADHO would probably want a mechanism to facilitate communication on this evolving issue.
