University of Alberta Student Library Advisory Committee

The overall goal of the University of Alberta Student Library Advisory Committee is to enhance library services to better meet evolving student needs and improve students' experience of the library. It meets to ensure effective communication and engagement between students and the University of Alberta Libraries. The Commitee serves as a think tank, providing the Library with feedback and input on specific issues, including Library services, communication channels, and Library policies and programs. Library staff seek to engage with students to identify student issues, interests, opinions, and suggestions. Students serve as a link between their campus communities and the Library.
