Library Student Advisory Committee

The Library Student Advisory Committee (LSAC) helps inform UBC Library decisions by providing insight into the needs and experiences of students. The committee represents a range of UBC Vancouver campus views, with undergraduate and graduate student members drawn from multiple faculties. 

Most LSAC meetings are facilitated discussions about Library-related topics. In these discussions LSAC members have an opportunity to share their own experiences and observations; to learn from fellow students; to reflect on the current and potential roles of the Library; and to help shape UBC Library’s contribution to the student experience. 

Familiarity with UBC Library is not required: LSAC’s primary role is to shed light on students’ needs, regardless of whether they are active Library users.
