Library Faculty and Officers of Administration (LFOA)

The Library Career Non-Tenure Track Faculty (Career NTTF) and Library Officers of Administration (OAs), collectively designated as the LFOA of the University of Oregon Libraries, includes all library personnel holding academic rank and all library personnel appointed as officers of administration. The LFOA group considers matters of mutual interest, promotes better communication, and provides a forum for democratic participation in policy making in the Libraries.

University Library Committee

The University Senate's Library Committee is responsible for advising University Administration on library affairs, serving in an advisory capacity to the Dean of Libraries, acting as a liaison between the UO Libraries and faculty, and providing a faculty perspective on budgetary matters.

Academic Technology Advisory Group (ATAG)

Led by the Libraries and sponsored by the Information Technology Steering Committee (ITSC), the Academic Technology Advisory Group (ATAG) is charged to submit recommendations related to the effective use of information technology in teaching and learning.

Student Advisory Board

The Libraries’ Student Advisory Board is established to help the Libraries better achieve its vision, mission, and goals related to students’ academic success. In return, the Libraries aim to provide student board members with valuable learning experiences, and the chance to influence and improve the design of library programs and services.

Advancement Council

The Library Advancement Council, made up of alumni and friends, is a critical part of the library's fundraising and outreach efforts. In addition to their philanthropic support of the library, Council members are engaged in advocacy, fundraising, and stewardship.
