Members bring knowledge of local area needs, experiences, and solutions to the larger group in order to facilitate improvements and new initiatives system-wide.

The Chair of PCWG will serve a two year term and will be selected by the members at the beginning of the fiscal year, or may be appointed by the Associate University Librarian for Digital Library Systems. Any member may serve as chair.
