LSTA Advisory Council


The Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Advisory Council is appointed by the State Library Board to advise the Board on matters concerning the administration of LSTA funding and support for Oregon libraries, as allotted to Oregon by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)


The LSTA Advisory Council typically meets twice a year, in the spring and fall, online. An additional one or two meetings may be held each year as needed. A press release with an agenda is issued at least 10 days before all meetings in accordance with Oregon’s open meeting laws. Each agenda has a time for public comment. All meetings are open to the public.

Advisory Council meeting documents older than 1 year are available upon request. Please contact
or 503-375-2525.


The LSTA Advisory Council consists of thirteen members and is broadly representative of library entities in Oregon, including public, school, academic, and special libraries. Special consideration is given to ensure that geographic areas of our state are represented by the Council, as are library users and representatives of underserved / under-represented persons. Terms are for three years. Nominations to fill upcoming vacancies are solicited in late summer / early fall via the Libs-Or mailing list. Nominations may also be made to Library Support and Development Services staff, or to the Chair of the State Library Board. Interested parties may contact or 503-375-2525 for more information.
