"This practical guide written by two library professionals who established a library student advisory board at Penn State University's Schuylkill campus, explains the benefits and operation of such a board. The club at Schuylkill resembles a public library's "friends" group in which members provide feedback and guidance for librarians while promoting and raising funds for patron-selected materials"--Provided by publisher.

This is a practical guide written by two professionals with real-world experience establishing a library student advisory board. Penn State University’s Schuylkill campus library has such a board, operating beautifully. Different from traditional student advisory boards, the club at Penn State Schuylkill resembles a public library’s “friends” group. The activities of the club benefit not only the library and campus but the club members themselves. Just how much time, effort, and know-how is required to form a library student advisory board? Here is the answer. Useful advice is offered on how to get a club started, how to recruit new members and keep them active, the duties of the club advisor, basic “do’s and don’ts” of fundraising, and how to build a successful relationship between the club, the library director, and the library staff.
