University Library Committee

Maintaining and promoting the welfare of the Jean and Alexander Heard Library System is the charge of the newly-established University Library Committee. With representation from each of Vanderbilt's schools and colleges, as well as the faculty senate, the committee will guide the strategic direction of the library to ensure that it best supports the research and teaching needs of the university within the context of the Academic Strategic Plan. Committee members will also serve as advocates for the library to the university community as the library works to grow the scope and stature of its campus presence.
