Library Council


The SOCHE Library Council seeks to be a networking community of library leaders committed to fostering the examination and discussion of library issues and trends for the benefit of its members.



SOCHE membership entitles an institution to full participation in the Library Council, which is comprised of the library directors/chief librarians (or designees) appointed from member institutions.


The Council shall regularly hold meetings and events consistent with its purpose. To accomplish its purpose, the Council may host speakers at professional development events and/or participate in other SOCHE events and conferences. The Conference Planning Committee shall meet with a frequency necessary to carry out its responsibilities in planning the event.

Scheduled Meetings

The SOCHE Library Council meets in a virtual environment approximately three times per year, with other meetings as requested. Contact Mindy Claggett by email at mindy.claggett@soche.org for all upcoming meeting dates and to join this council.

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
