Libraries Student Advisory Group

Two students walking on a campus path while chatting.

The Libraries Student Advisory Group (LSAG) is an opportunity for students to have an active voice at the Washington University Libraries.

The goal of this group will be to engage students with library-related issues on campus. The group will serve as a two-way forum for exchanging information between students on the Danforth Campus and the Washington University Libraries.

Participation will entail 2-3 formal meetings per semester during 2023 to learn about and discuss plans/programs, interact with Libraries’ leadership, and share outreach ideas. Additional opportunities to assist with events and orientation activities will be available.

All students (undergraduate & graduate) on the Danforth Campus in good academic standing are welcome to apply. Up to 10 students will be selected to participate each year.
