Anne Davis and I are co-chairs of the Libraries Student Advisory Committee, a group that seeks to get students involved in the decision making processes that guide the enhancement of learning spaces and library services. We are asking for your help in promoting this service and leadership opportunity for undergraduate students. We are hoping you can send along the following information to your advisees. Please let us know if you have any questions. Email text follows:
The University of Washington Libraries is seeking students for an exciting opportunity to serve the UW community. No longer is the library just a place for books! Libraries are transforming to meet students’ need for highly collaborative spaces where technology and information come together. But we need your help to do it right! The Libraries Student Advisory Committee is a chance for students to get involved in the decision making processes that guide the enhancement of learning spaces and library services. The Libraries Student Advisory Committee is a great way to connect with other like-minded (and awesome!) students and to work directly with professional mentors. Your membership on the Committee will also enhance your own community service experience, which looks great on a resume or graduate school application.
Membership for one academic year, beginning autumn quarter
Weekly meetings during winter quarter (meeting schedule can be changed to accommodate your availability)
Independent or group work on projects for the Committee during winter quarter
Members may serve multiple terms.
Co-chairs of the Libraries Student Advisory Committee are Amanda Hornby (hornbya) and Anne Davis (adavey). See our website, www.lib.washington.edu/lsac, or email us for more information or to join!
