Library Council

Purpose

The Library Council develops the library strategic plan and advises the University Librarian on library policies, evaluation, initiatives, personnel and budgets.

 

Membership and Elections

The membership consists of the University Librarian and the department heads; one elected representative of the unclassified and classified staff, respectively; the Office Manager (ex-officio); and others by appointment of University Librarian.

 

The elected classified and unclassified staff representatives are elected in alternating years for two-year terms beginning January 1. Elected representatives may not serve consecutive terms. Permanent and appointed members are ineligible to be nominated or vote in the election.  Each newly elected member is invited to attend December meetings prior to their term as a guest.

 

The role of elected members is to represent the Library staff. Elected members should proactively communicate with their constituents regarding agendas, action items and decisions.
