Service as an advisor is open to all current undergraduate and graduate students of Texas Tech University. We value diversity on the board.

We aspire to include students of different classifications representing a variety of academic colleges and special populations, such as transfer, international, distance or first-generation students. Students who are frequent users of the library, as well as those new to campus or unfamiliar with the library are eligible.

Undergraduate and graduate students who serve as advisors on the Board share their ideas, opinions and experiences of using the University Libraries. They have the opportunity to advocate for the perspectives of student library users and make a positive impact at Texas Tech. Advisors have the following responsibilities:

  1. Provide their personal input on current and new library services, spaces, resources, events and policies
  2. Promote library services, resources, and events
  3. Participate in user research projects to evaluate library services
  4. Educate fellow students about the library

Advisors will serve for the entire academic year (fall and spring) and are expected to attend two meetings per semester.
