The UC San Diego University Librarian’s Advisory Board brings together a group of distinguished individuals with a demonstrated commitment to the vision and goals of the UC San Diego Library. The Board’s mission is to provide support for the Library through annual philanthropic support of the Library, strategic introductions, networking with individuals and foundations, and facilitating and hosting local and regional events in order to help the Library realize its full potential as one of the nation's leading research libraries.
Three board meetings are scheduled each year with additional collective or individual meetings in person or via telephone as required. The fall meeting is a longer planning meeting.
The UC San Diego Library commits to providing the following to the Board:
The Board shall consist of 12-15 members, selected by the Board Chair and the University Librarian. The Board Chair shall be selected by the University Librarian. In seeking new members, the Board Chair and the University Librarian consider the skills and expertise of current members and look for commitment and diversity.
The term of service for Board members shall be three years, at the end of which time a Board member may be asked to serve a second term. Standard service shall be for one or two three-year terms. However, when a Board Member has made an extraordinary contribution and is willing to continue, the Board Chair and the University Librarian may ask him or her to stay on for a longer period. Past Board members may be considered for new Board service after not having served on the Board for at least one year.
