WSU Libraries are seeking undergraduate and graduate students and student-workers to serve on their new Library Student Advisory Board. The board exists as a direct channel for students to give input about the physical and digital experience of the WSU Libraries, including websites, online services, collections, in‑person services and physical spaces. The LSAB also helps determine best practices for measuring awareness around Libraries’ services, including communication and campus-wide messaging.

Advisers will represent a diverse cross section of the WSU Pullman and Global Campus population. The board will be made up of:

  • At least one student from the sciences
  • Undergraduate library student employee (preferably Access Services student)
  • Graduate student
  • ASWSU student
  • Global Campus student
  • Multicultural Student Services student
  • Two at‑large students

Activities may include:

  • Assessment (such as coordinating pilot test surveys, assisting in distribution/promotion of surveys, recruiting students to participate, evaluating spaces and prioritizing services);
  • Coordinating events/programs (such as helping to plan events and promoting student participation); and
  • Outreach (such as speaking to student groups, engaging in library advocacy to student government, conducting focus groups and getting other student feedback)

Recruitment for advisers will start with the beginning of WSU spring semester Tuesday, Jan. 19. To submit a nomination or for more information, contact Erica Nicol at eacarlson@wsu.edu.
