Sciences Council

Content section: 

The 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.

Each subject council will have representatives from every library unit that manages collections relevant to the subject of the council. More than one staff member of a library unit may attend a specific subject council. Each subject council may add additional members to its group, either temporarily or permanently, if unique expertise is needed. Members of subject councils may be either library assistants or librarians. It is envisioned that the subject councils will have more members than the function councils.
