Library/ITS Student Advisory Group

Description

The Library/ITS Student Advisory Group (LISAG) is a group of students who provide input on library and technology services. The group meets 2-3 times each semester. Goals of the group include:

  • Providing student perspectives on existing library and technology services;
  • Discussing and providing student perspectives on new or possible future services;
  • Communicating information received from University Libraries and Information Technology Services leadership to constituencies (including Student Government, Graduate Student Association, fellow students in their academic units and student organizations); and
  • Bringing concerns and new ideas to the attention of University Libraries’ and Information Technology Services’ leadership.
LISAG conversations have resulted in such improvements as:
  • Improved signage for active, quiet, and silent study spaces;
  • Improvements to various web interfaces and online tools;
  • Office supplies vending machine in Moody Library;
  • Improved signage for the Jones information desk;
