In its first year, the founding Council members began meeting weekly in April and in the course of only two months, advised the Library on how to reach students through both web- and print-based media. They also provided significant input to the Library's website, resulting in improved access to Library social media sites, and easier access to information about Library study spaces and computing resources. They also provided leadership and direction to students continuing their work in the following year.
