The Albert S. Cook Library recognizes the importance of student contribution to library policies, services, facilities, resources, and programming. The Cook Library Student Advisory Board (CL-SAB) is a student led group that works to advise as well as actively lead initiatives in these areas.

What does CL-SAB do?

  • plan and execute an annual fundraising activity to fund the CL-SAB
  • make decisions on how to spend the CL-SAB fund for library resources or programs
  • plan and execute student centered programming and/or services

What is the time commitment?

How is the group structured?
