Student Library Advisory Council

The Student Library Advisory Council promotes the library’s collections, resources, services, and programs by sharing information and providing tours, participating in programs, assisting with projects, recruiting new members to the council, and encouraging others to read for academic success, personal growth, and recreation. Council members also contribute to improving the library for current and future students by recommending changes, voicing concerns, and providing feedback to the dean.
