LSU Libraries has implemented a Student Advisory Council that will represent the Libraries to the student body and provide a formal channel for student suggestions related to library needs. The council, an initiative suggested by the LSU Student Government,  is composed of 10 undergraduate and graduate students nominated by LSU faculty or staff member or a student organization.

The council launched on March 21 with a kick-off meeting. Going forward, there will be three council meetings in the fall semesters and three council meetings during the spring semesters. The responsibilities of the council include promoting and supporting LSU Libraries, representing the Libraries at University functions, providing student input on support services and promotional materials, and sharing their personal LSU Libraries experiences with classes.

Student members are required to be in good standing with the University, to be enthusiastic about helping their peers succeed, and to be willing to participate and lead discussions for student groups in person or online.

Serving on the council is an honor as well as a rewarding experience, giving the council members the opportunity to practice their communication and leadership skills, network with faculty, staff and other students, and further their academic success by learning more about the LSU Libraries.
