The Rohrbach Library Student Advisory Council kicked off with their inaugural meeting last month. With much praise for the new Library widget on Desire2Learn and other recommendations for outreach and other concerns that the students brought up. The Council seeks to help the Library provide open communication channels between students and the library administration and staff to provide recommendations and bring new ideas forward from the perspective of students relating to the library’s services, policies, resources and physical and digital spaces. Students get the chance to advise about what services are important to them and participate in development of new ones. This is a great opportunity for the voice of the students to be heard!
Membership is still available before the next meeting on February 4th! The Council is looking for members from all majors, Student Government Board, Commuter Services, Honors Council and Greek life to participate. Aside from the opportunity to better your favorite library; this is a fantastic addition to your resume. Members are appointed to a one-year term with the option to be reappointed to a second term. The Council meets in February, April, September and November.
