Librarians interested in serving on the Council must be members of ALA, RUSA, and CODES. A strong background in readers’ advisory service or collection development (preferably both) is the major qualification sought when appointments are made. Experience reviewing audiobooks is also considered and may weigh heavily in the appointment process. Past service in CODES, geographic location, and type of library are also considered. No two members of the same library can serve on the Council at the same time.
If you are interested in serving on the Council, contact the current vice-chair of CODES for more information.
