Student Library Council

Welcome to the Student Library Council page!

The Student Library Council serves as a formal channel of communication between Georgetown University Main Campus undergraduate and graduate students and the Library. The Council’s mission is to engage students with the Library, providing opportunities for members to advise and give feedback on improving collections, services and spaces, and discuss library issues affecting the student body.

Role of the Council

Council members will:

  1. Communicate student ideas, provide feedback about the Library’s collections, services and space, and address present and future needs of the student community.

  2. Serve as ambassadors between the student body and the Library both by representing student views to the Library and helping to communicate information about the Library to their peers.

  3. Discuss how the Library can most effectively communicate its resources, services and plans with students and conversely, how students can most effectively communicate their wishes, needs and concerns with the Library.
