As we hope you know, we in Library Services want to provide the best possible service to our students.  As a result we want to actively engage our customers in our decision making to  make a better service for you.

So we’d like to invite some of you to help us select and purchase our books!  But there’s a bit more to it than that of course…

We’d like our library champions to

  • Contribute to the development of library collections and services
  • Listen to the view of your peers and feedback to the library
  • Respond to your peers’ views on the availability of resources
  • Meet regularly with the relevant Academic Liaison Librarian
  • Collate and communicate feedback on Library Services
  • Act as a sounding board for library proposals
  • Promote Library Services to your fellow students
  • Spend a small budget on library resources (minimum of £500)

In return though you’ll get

  • An opportunity to influence library decision making
  • Transferable skills development in advocacy, negotiation, budgeting and promotion
  • Having a fast method of ordering library materials
  • A role to add to your CV
  • To feel empowered and valued by the University

We’ll work closely with you throughout the project, providing all materials and guidance.  And don’t worry about it interfering with your studies – although some time will be needed, we don’t want to detract from your work.

Interested?  Then please drop an email to mailto:lis-acquisitions@ljmu.ac.ukto express your interest.  Time is short though!  We need to hear from you before the 17th February.

We look forward to working with you!
