University Libraries Committee

The University Libraries Committee aims to serve as an advisory group to the Dean of Libraries and to formulate standards and policy recommendations for the continual improvement and development of the Libraries. It also evaluates the Libraries' services and holdings and serves as a liaison between the users and the Libraries' administration. The committee is typically comprised of four representatives from the College, at least one each from the professional schools, and graduate and undergraduate students. The faculty terms are for three years and are generally renewed one time. Student terms vary from one to three years.
