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. 

What is the LSAC?

LSAC members help UBC Library learn about current student needs so the library can plan its services accordingly. 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.

How often does the LSAC meet?

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, learn from fellow students, and help shape UBC Library’s contribution to the student experience. Members attend four meetings via Zoom between November and April. 

How do you join the LSAC?

We invite new members to join the LSAC every year in early fall.
