Library, Media and Web Services Advisory Committee





The committee will provide guidance on policies and issues related to the library, as well as media and web services, while avoiding detailed and/or administrative functions.   The committee will  devote attention to special projects as needed. 




Three faculty, one staff, two students, the Associate VP for ITS, and a representative from the Center for Scholarship and Teaching. Ex officio Library Director, Director of Media Services, Director of Web Services, and Associate Library Directors.  Faculty and staff representatives have two year terms of office with terms arranged so that there is a continuing member on the committee.  Students have a one year term.  All can be reappointed.





Faculty are appointed by the Faculty Advisory Council after consultation with the Provost.  The Staff representative is appointed by SAC.  Students are appointed by the Vice President, External, of the Community Council.  The representative from the CST is either the Director, or selected by the Director.




  • The limited number of members necessitates an institution wide perspective, rather than representation of particular (e.g. : departmental) interests
  • The committee will provide feedback on strategic directions and response to annual goals and planning processes that take place in January
  • A Web Services Advisory Committee exists and depending on the issue, topics related to the web may be forwarded to that committee
  • Issues can be brought to the committee from any source and the members in turn will assist in communication with the Macalester community
