Library Advisory Group

The purpose of the Library Advisory Group (LAG), which was established in 2010, is to advise the Dean of the Drexel Libraries, expand communication channels and develop partnerships throughout the University. Members are invited to bring up any concerns or observations about the Libraries and are not expected to be a management or oversight group. Different perspectives from members are encouraged. Members take responsibility to routinely meet with their college/school dean and assembly of faculty both to share information about the Libraries and to solicit feedback from the constituents they represent on the Advisory Group.
