[Eril-l] Language that University Promotions Committees Will Understand?

This is a little off-topic but I am hoping to tap into your collective experience. After 23 years I find myself being required to go for promotion – long story, college became university, contract changed, etc.  So much advice I have seen around making the case for promotion centres around teaching and teaching evaluations. Working in collections development and electronic resources management presents some challenges in terms of making a case that a promotions committee comprised primarily of non-librarians can relate to. Does anyone have suggestions for language to use in the statement of case, describing the work we do in collections and electronic resources management in a way that won’t leave physicists and historians perplexed?

Any suggestions or advice gratefully received off-list please.

Many thanks,
