Committee Charge

The Faculty Library Committee will: 1) review planning proposals and budget documents provided by the library administration, particularly as they pertain to resource decisions and space allocation; 2) recommend changes to those proposals and documents based on needs of the faculty; 3) review the consultation process used by the library to ensure that schools, departments, programs, and centers are all equally engaged and consulted; and 4) collaborate broadly with the University Librarian and advocate to the University leadership for the library and its priorities.
