Student Library Advisory Committee

The Student Library Advisory Committee was created to give students an active voice in library-related issues on campus. The Student Library Advisory Committee is a two-way forum for information exchange between students and the Columbia University Libraries.  Meetings will be scheduled twice per semester during the Fall and Spring academic terms.  Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.


The Student Library Advisory Committee is charged with maintaining effective communication channels between student organizations, their members, and the Columbia University Libraries. The Student Library Advisory Committee serves as a conduit for the transmission of student needs and concerns to the administration and staff of the Columbia University Libraries.
