Library Champions Scheme
Since 2011, we have been recruiting Library Champions from students on taught courses across the University. The idea is to get students more involved in Library matters, whilst offering them a chance to augment their CVs and develop their skills in advocacy, negotiation, budgeting and promotion.
We look to have Library Champions in each subject area, both at Exeter and in Cornwall: we value energy and enthusiasm, and participants from all levels of taught study are welcomed.
What do Library Champions do?
Library Champions meet regularly with the Liaison Team, collate feedback on Library developments and act as a focus group on specific issues. Library Champions may occasionally be asked to write reports on their activities to the Staff/Student Liaison Committee in their department when required. They have also been invited to add a student perspective to our staff training sessions.
Library Champions have also been allocated a budget to spend on library resources. This allows them to quickly respond to their peers' needs for extra copies, e-versions, or any additional texts that the libraries require.
