About the Academic Assembly of Librarians

“The Academic Assembly of Librarians is organized to foster the professional development and academic growth of librarians and to provide a means for broader professional staff participation in the development of the Temple University Libraries. By committee work, debate and resolution, it will express views on broad policy of library administration.”

Bylaws, 2002


All professional librarians employed by Temple University are members of the Academic Assembly of Librarians.

Assembly members’ activities include serving on committees to select and appoint candidates to open positions in the Libraries; holding continuing education workshops for librarians and staff; evaluating the promotion and regular appointment applications of their peers; and meeting regularly with the Dean of University Libraries.

General Assembly meetings are held every two months during the academic year.
