We are looking for students 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 views of other students and feed back to the library
Respond to student views on the availability of resources
Meet 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 for:
- 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 by 15th December to email@example.com to express your interest.
We look forward to working with you!
