The Brandeis University Library is committed to providing exceptional research services and resources to facilitate student success. We recognize the importance of student input on library services, space, resources, events, and policies. The Brandeis Library Student Advisory Council aims to facilitate a dialogue between students and library administration on library issues that impact the student body.

Membership & Meetings

The Brandeis Library Student Advisory Council has 15-25 student members. The membership of this Council includes representation from a broad cross-section of schools and years of study from both undergraduate and graduate levels. The group is co-chaired by the University Librarian, Matthew Sheehy and the Manager of Public Services, Mary Calo. 

Meetings are held twice per semester during the Fall and Spring academic terms. Meetings will generally be held in October, November, February, and March. Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.
