The Faculty Library Committee

In the report “The network : the reorganisation of library and information services at UGent” Lars Björnshaug describes the primary tasks of the Faculty Library Committee:

  • to give advice to the faculty librarian about the overall profile of the services;
  • to give advice about collection development;
  • to prepare the budget for the faculty library services (be it in one or more libraries) to be discussed and decided upon at the faculty board;
  • to draft a plan for the library services at faculty level;
  • to evaluate the quality of library services.

The Faculty Library Committee of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy is composed of representatives of the various departments, student representatives, a representative for the ATP (administrative and technical staff) and a member of the Book Tower (central library). The reports can be read by any member of the faculty on the Sharepoint site of the Faculty Library Committee.
