The Student Library Advisory Board (SLAB) contributes both a unique and vital perspective on issues such as collaborative learning, desired atmosphere for study, technological needs or uses of current technology, and the creation and development of a student video collection. The SLAB provides input on which library services students find effective, which services are ineffective and which services students don’t use.
The primary objective of the board is to serve as a conduit for the exchange of ideas between the student body and the library administration in order to better address student needs, provide new services and improve existing services. This board is strictly advisory in nature.
It is our hope that the Student Library Advisory Board will help student gain a deeper understanding of the mission, purpose and role of the academic library as well as a deeper understanding of the activities, environment and tools that are necessary for serious academic inquiry. Please feel free to communicate with the SLAB by email at StudentLibraryAdvisoryBoard@cofc.edu.

Student Library Advisory Board Goals:
Members serve at least one academic year and are able to continue to serve on the advisory board as long as they are currently enrolled at the College of Charleston. The advisory board meets approximate once a month to discuss and provide advice on issues, projects, and initiatives that affect the quality of the student experience at the Library.
