Student Advisory Council Starts a New Year

Student Advisory Council

Dean and Director Gillian M. McCombs welcomed new and returning students to the Central University Libraries Student Advisory Council at the first meeting of the 2012-13 academic year August 27. Dean McCombs filled the students in on some changes, including new digital signage at Fondren Library Center and new online research guides. Science Research Librarian Ben Toon followed up by showing instructional videos that demonstrate how to use the Discover SMU Libraries search engine and key research tools available on the CUL home page. Then the students offered their perspectives, which included the suggestion to promote the tools on Facebook and other sites they commonly use. The advisory council meets each month to discuss and exchange ideas about library services, collections and facilities.
