Join the Student Library Advisory Council

Current Mount Royal students interested in gaining experience on a council while helping to direct future changes to the University Library are encouraged to join the Student Library Advisory Council. Submit your statement of interest by Wednesday, October 30.

What is it? 
SLAC is a forum for gathering input and advice from MRU students about the University Library. Students on the council provide feedback on resources, services, spaces and programs, and help generate ideas for enhancing the student experience at the library.

When does it meet?
We plan to meet three times this year. The first meeting will be on November 7th from 12:00pm-1:30pm. Dates and times for next semester will be scheduled based on member availability.

What will you get out of it? 
This is an opportunity to contribute to future Library improvements that will better the student experience. Learn what the Library has to offer and how it operates while gaining committee experience to add to your resume. SLAC is also a great venue to meet other students from across campus over snacks or a light meal.

What is expected of student members? 
You are expected to attend and participate in meetings by sharing ideas and providing feedback about how to improve the Library, along with helping to strengthen communication between the Library and MRU students. We understand if your schedule requires you to arrive late or leave meetings early.

How do I apply?
Please submit your name and a brief paragraph describing your interest in joining SLAC, via email to the committee chair Alice Swabey, at aswabey@mtroyal.ca, no later than October 30th.
