Library Student Advisory Council

Yes, there is a Library Student Advisory Council at UC San Diego!

The LSAC is a forum for ongoing dialogue between students and Library staff with the goal of providing the diverse UC San Diego student community with the best possible library services, spaces, and collections to meet their academic needs.

What do students on the Council do?

  • Convey student needs, concerns, and priorities to the Library
  • Provide advice and feedback on library policies and services
  • Provide ideas and input on the design and implementation of new library services
  • Provide ideas and input on improving library spaces
  • Provide the Library insight into student study, research, and library use habits
  • Help communicate information about library services and resources to the student community

Who is on the Council?

  • Students selected from the general student body
  • Students appointed by Associated Students and the College Councils
  • Library staff members, including the Associate University Librarian (AUL) for Academic Services who will lead the group

Appointments to the LSAC are made in the spring and summer and then officially begin Fall Quarter. Appointments last for the entire academic year.

When does the LSAC meet?

  • The Council meets up to 5 times spread throughout the academic year (not during the summer). Some work is accomplished outside of standing meetings.
  • Meetings are on Tuesday evenings from 5-6:30pm.
