Pius XII Memorial Library has a history of partnering with many independent units of campus. One of the most successful partnerships is with the Student Government Association (SGA). This lightening round will discuss ceding some library control to students and the positive ROI of sharing that control for policies, procedures, and spaces. The partnership between students and the library staff has always existed – ten years ago the library began 24/5 hours due to an agreement with SGA, the University President, and the Provost. In the last four years, the relationship with SGA has become even more important with students determining and funding equipment purchases and their loan rules, requesting dedicated library spaces for events and fundraising, and even funding a Wellness room in the library. Student agency with library issues is valued by both SGA and the library and is noticed and recognized by senior administration.
