New at the University Libraries: Student Library Ambassadors Program

In News and Announcements by AUB Libraries / November 12, 2018 / 0 Comments

The University Libraries are very glad to have cooperated with the Center of Civic Engagement and Community Services (CCECS) to recruit Library Student Ambassadors.

The role of these student ambassadors is to help the library reach out to the student body and better communicate with AUB students. The main projects include launching a campaign to raise awareness about fair space and quiet study in the Libraries, planning and marketing library events and serving as a library focus group to provide feedback, suggestions and ideas for library outreach within the AUB student Community.

The partnership with CCECS and with the student volunteers started this fall and the plan is to keep it running to make sure students’ perspective is always taken into consideration when planning any service launch or any event at the Libraries.

So far, 6 very committed and enthusiastic students have joined the Library Ambassadors Program and have assisted the Libraries in several projects.

Mounir Arab, one of the student volunteers, says that at first he was hesitant to undergo this experience. He then realized that being a Library Student Ambassador is not only about performing the allocated tasks and enforcing library rules, but is also about making Jafet Library a better place for his fellow students.

The University Libraries will always welcome student volunteers to add value to the student-library relationship and experience. For more information about this, please contact CCECS or contact Jafet Library.
