The board was started in 2011 to help the libraries learn more about our users and our community to meet their evolving needs. It also allows the libraries to explore effective and creative responses to our users' learning and research behaviors.
We meet twice per semester with each meeting lasting around an hour - virtual participation is available as well. We ask each member to commit to participating in at least 2 meetings per year, attending one library event, and utilizing one library service that they wouldn't ordinarily use. On a monthly basis, members are asked to complete a brief survey or respond to email feedback.
At our most recent meeting we focused on Ekstrom Library's 3rd floor renovation, and how our board members like to use the libraries. In the past we've addressed things like increasing hours, availability of electrical outlets and quiet study space.
