The M. Louis Salmon Library at UAH recognizes that a strong, high-quality research library requires input and participation from the student body. The Library Student Advisory Group (LSAG) is a fundamental component of the library’s efforts to support the research, teaching and learning mission of UAH. The purpose of the LSAG is to provide a formal channel of communication between students and the Library administration.
The LSAG includes student representatives (both undergraduate and graduate students) from each of the UAH Colleges, in addition to UAH Library personnel. The Library issues a call for applications to the LSAG annually or as representative positions become available.
LSAG membership is by invitation. Student applications/nominations will be reviewed by UAH Library leadership. As needed (if graduate/undergraduate representation from a specific college is lacking), specific deans and/or faculty may also be asked to nominate student representatives from their respective college.
Student LSAG members serve for a one year term. Members in good standing who are interested in serving on the following year may be invited to do so.
For the student representatives in the LSAG, membership will be of benefit in the long run. Membership in the LSAG will provide these students with crucial experience in multi-disciplinary communication, will increase their familiarity with research resources, and will be a useful addition to their résumé.
Several UAH Library faculty & staff members also serve on the LSAG, including David Moore, the Library Director.
The LSAG will meet at least once or twice per semester.
