Who is on the Board?
The Student’s Library Advisory Board is comprised of students from all majors and represents the wonderfully diverse campus community. Every status of student is welcome, from Freshman to Graduate and Transfer students. The aim is to include students who hold a variety of interests (Panhellenic, campus recreation, etc.) to ensure that the library is best serving the needs of all students.
What Does the Board Do?
Founded in 2021, the Student’s Library Advisory Board’s mission is to give students an active voice in library-related issues on campus. The Board is a forum for information exchange between students and the UTC Library with a shared goal of supporting the success of UTC’s diverse student community.
Board members meet twice each semester to exchange ideas, share feedback, and propose changes to library operations. As well, Board members stay in contact via email between meetings.
Serving on the Board is a voluntary, unpaid position. The benefits are having a chance to direct the library into better serving your needs and to ensure that the best possible programs, services, materials, and spaces are available for you and your peers. Plus, experience serving on a Board is a great addition to your professional resume!
How Do I Get Involved?
Typically, a new Board is convened early in the Fall semester. However, requests for info are welcome at any time, as there may be an opportunity to participate in the Board or another student group at various times.
