The Advisory Council provides programmatic and strategic oversight of the consortium’s priorities and activities, advising the Executive Committee on strategic directions and financial decisions. The Advisory Council charges and engages regularly with working groups, advising them as needed, and monitors signature events and their associated steering committees.


The Advisory Council consists of up to four representatives from each member institution (at the Associate University Librarian, Assistant Director, or Library Director level). Members serve a minimum of a two-year term. Membership is reviewed annually by the Executive Committee, who will ensure that diverse skill sets, perspectives, and areas of expertise are represented.


The Advisory Council meets quarterly, convened by the TRLN Executive Director. All meetings will be listed on the TRLN Events Calendar as they are scheduled.
