Library Student Advisory Board
Undergraduate and graduate students who serve as advisors on the Board share their ideas, opinions and experiences of using the University Libraries. They have the opportunity to advocate for the perspectives of student library users and make a positive impact at Texas Tech. Advisors have the following responsibilities:
- Provide their personal input on current and new library services, spaces, resources, events and policies
- Participate in user research projects to evaluate library services
- Promote library services, resources, and events to fellow students
The Board will meet once per month during each fall and spring semester. During the Fall 2023 semester, Board meetings will be held at the University Library on Sept. 19, Oct. 17, and Nov. 14 (Tuesdays) from 6–7:00 pm.
To support distance student participation, all advisors have the option to join meetings virtually. Advisors will also meet individually with User Experience unit employees to participate in feedback sessions or other user experience research methods.
Comments from past advisors
- There were a couple of things and services that I was not aware of until I joined the Board. I truly enjoyed our meetings and appreciate it that our feedback was taken into consideration for improving the library features and services. It brings a great satisfaction and sense of accomplishment to represent the student body while also serving the library.
- I enjoyed meeting new people from different colleges and expressing my new ideas to the whole board!
- It felt good knowing my opinions were valued and taken into consideration. I also appreciated the support I felt, like it was a group of friends.
