The function of the Library Committee is to advise the director of Tisch Library on library policies, budget, collections, and services. It also assists in the dissemination of information about the library to constituent groups. Committee members become familiar with the operational activities of the library.

This committee consists of six faculty members, at least four of whom have professorial rank, with no more than one member from any one department and with priority given to representing the diversity of disciplines in the schools; two undergraduate students designated by the TCU Senate; one graduate student designated by the Graduate Student Council; and the following administrators as ex officio members with voting privileges: the director and associate director of Tisch Library or their designees. Members are appointed to a five-year term.

Committee members attend four meetings per academic year (September, November, February, April). Planning the meetings is the responsibility of the Library Director in consultation with the faculty committee chair. This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers. This committee is appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
