OISE Library Student Advisory Committee


The OISE Library Student Advisory Committee will provide a venue for open conversations about the OISE Library. The Committee will facilitate direct communication between OISE students, the Director of the OISE Library, and OISE Library staff, and will invite students to share suggestions and get involved in the decision making processes that will help to shape and improve the Library's programs, services, resources, and facilities.


The OISE Library Student Advisory Committee is intended to reflect the various opinions and concerns of the entire OISE student body regarding the Library. Therefore, the Committee should be comprised of a diverse group of students who can help to make the Library a more inclusive and accessible place.

The OISE Library encourages participation on the Advisory Commitee by racialized persons / persons of colour, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, international students, persons who identify as LGBTQ2SIA+, and others who will contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
