Social Sciences Council

The Social Sciences Council is one of three subject councils within the Library. For more information on the structure of library councils, see the Library Organization Chart.

Mission:
The Social Sciences Council is a subject-focused group organized to discuss and advise on library issues related to collections and services affecting social sciences faculty and students.

The Council's major activities will include:

  1. Reviewing social science collection issues referred to the Council.
  2. Discussing and referring issues raised by members to other library councils, or to the Library Administration.
  3. Encouraging information exchange and a spirit of cooperation among the social science selectors and reference librarians/specialists.
  4. Planning educational and training sessions/workshops.
  5. Providing opportunities for library support services (e.g., LSO, Technical Services, Admin. Services, etc.) to interact with council members.

Membership:
Membership is open to librarians and library assistants involved in social science collection development and reference services.

Some of the work of the Council may be done by ad hoc task forces composed of members and other library staff.
