The Board advises the Dean of University Libraries on important and impactful issues related to the Libraries’ spaces, services, resources, programming, and collections on all campuses. The Board is a key stakeholder in advancing the Libraries’ Strategic Plan and its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
