Hello, everyone.

Please do step up and join this effort. I had told Jason Byrd about your various concerns (complaints) and he said he'd try to address them. I'm not certain if Jason is spearheading this particular effort, but he's probably involved to some extent. In any event, your concerns will be taken more seriously if you try to be part of the solution.

Subject: FW: Student advisory group

> Hi everyone,
> The Library is planning on forming a Student Advisory Group of
> undergrads and grad students, and after a recent conversation with
> Brian Platt, I know some folks expressed some concerns about the
> Library and its policies. Well, here is your chance to be involved
> in a group that will have some input into those very policies! The
> commitment is rather minor - 2 or 3 meetings a semester at most.
> Let me know if you are interested, I would certainly like to
> "pack" a la FDR's court packing with History grad students since
> we probably use the Library more than most if not all other
> disciplines!
> All the best,
> Steve
