Library Student Advisory Council: About

ABOUT

 

Barry University's Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library Student Advisory Council (LSAC) was established in the Fall 2019 semester to work with the University Library on issues of common interest.

LSAC serves the campus by:

  • Advising on the design and implementation of library policies and services affecting students.
  • Offering student perspectives on library issues.
  • Gathering input from other Barry University undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Representing the University Library at campus events and meetings.
  • Advocating for the University Library to campus constituencies.

 

PURPOSE

 

The Library Student Advisory Council was created to give students an active voice in library-related issues on campus. The LSAC is a two-way forum for information exchange between students and the Barry University Libraries. Meetings will be scheduled twice per semester during the Fall and Spring academic terms. Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.

The LSAC is charged with maintaining effective communication channels between student organizations, their members, and the Barry University Libraries. The LSAC serves as a conduit for the transmission of student needs and concerns to the administration and staff of the Barry University Libraries.

Members of these advisory boards will help improve the learning and research environment for Barry University students and advise the Libraries on topics such as study spaces, research resources, integrating library services into academic courses, and marketing library services to students.

At the end of the year we will host a pizza party and give a certificate of appreciation and a letter of recommendation.
