Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of this committee was to prepare a report advising the Department of Education on the development of the National Library of Education. That report was completed during FY 1997 and submitted and published.The committee submitted its final report on 12/09/96. Per the statute, it terminated thrity (30) days later, on 1/8/97. The report was later published by the National Library of Education in February, 1997.
How is membership balanced?*The committee membership, per the requirements of the establishing statute, represented a mix of librarians, archivists, educators, and business and community leaders. These persons represented all levels of educational practice: university, school, and public libraries and information centers; traditional and electronic information services; and the geographic, cultural, ethnic, and gender diversity of the United States.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee was budgeted and intended to meet three (3) times during FY 1996 in order to hear public testimony and draft its report. The third meeting actually occurred during FY 1997 (10/30/96-11/1/96) due to scheduling requirements, however all monies were obligated during the FY 1996. There was no additional budgeted meetings during FY 1997 while federal staff prepared the final draft for publication.Since the committee was ad hoc and scheduled to terminate upon submission of its only task (the final report), there is no further relevance to continuing the committee.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The United States has never possessed a national library of education until it was authorized by the Congress via 20 USC 6051. Given the evolving nature of both information technology and educational activity, it was deemed necessary and worthwhile to gather a group of national experts and leaders to advise on how best to meet the challenge of creating this new library in an electronic era, making the best and most creative use of available national resources.
