Committee on Affiliated Libraries Affairs

Current Roster


The Committee on Affiliated Libraries Affairs ensures that the interests of the UC Berkeley Affiliated Libraries are represented and addressed with LAUC-B. The committee helps bridge the institutional gap between The Library and the Affiliated Libraries in order to achieve a productive and collegial working relationship within the campus library community. The Chair, along with other members of the Committee on Affiliated Libraries Affairs, is also charged with producing Fall and Spring Assemblies for the affiliated libraries. The assemblies serve as a forum for sharing information and issues.

The Committee on Affiliated Libraries Affairs comprises the Chair, Chair-Elect, TALAG Chair, and the LAUC-B Vice-Chair (ex officio).
