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.
Beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year, the Board will sponsor an annual project within the University Libraries. Our current project is the One Book, One UofL reading series which will take place in Spring 2024!
We meet two or three times 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 and attending at least one library event. On a monthly basis, members are asked to complete a brief survey or respond to email feedback.
At our most recent meeting we participated in an activity and discussed how students find information resources in the libraries. In the past we've addressed things like increasing hours, availability of electrical outlets and quiet study spaces, and website updates.
