To evaluate, select, annotate and present a list of notable digital media of interest to children which is updated on a continual basis.
The Notable Children’s Digital Media committee, a virtual committee, consists of 9 members appointed from the ALSC membership at large, serving 2-year terms and led by two committee co-chairs (2 co-chairs +7).
Established in 1999 as the 700+ Great Sites Task Force at the request of the ALSC Board of Directors. In 2002, at the request of the ALSC Board of Directors, the Notable Children's Web Sites committee was merged into the Great Web Sites committee. In 2016, due to emerging technology trends, the Board approved the evolution of the work of this committee to include digital media.
ALSC and ALA value committed and active committee members. Qualified ALSC members are welcome to volunteer to serve on ALSC's committees. Committee members must have an interest in the work of the committee; be able to attend Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings to participate in the meetings and activities of the committee; and be able to work between conferences via e-mail and ALA Connect. Express your interest in serving on this or other ALSC committees by filling out an ALSC committee volunteer form. Depending on the committee, appointments take place either in the spring or fall. Accordingly, committee service begins either following Annual Conference or Midwinter Meeting.
