Student Library Advisory Board (SLAB)

This site provides information on the activities, goals, and application process for the Student Library Advisory Board at Syracuse University.

What is the Student Library Advisory Board?

The Student Library Advisory Board (SLAB) is an open forum for students to voice their concerns, ideas, and feedback regarding library-related issues. We meet over pizza every 3 weeks during the Fall and Spring academic terms. The goal of the Student Library Advisory Board is to engage in and sustain an ongoing dialogue between the student population and the library through participatory design activities.

It’s our way of inviting students to make their voices heard, engage in a community of peers from across the University, and highlight areas for the library to improve.

Submit the SLAB Sign-up Form to get involved, or reach out to Natalie LoRusso, UX Librarian with questions.
