The Advisory Council for Information Services (ACIS) is an appointed body which is representative of the major academic and administrative divisions of the university. ACIS was created to advise the provost on campus policies relating to Library and Technology Services' (LTS) responsibilities. ACIS reviews and approves policies developed by Library & Technology Services staff. These policies are also circulated to the campus community for comment for a period of thirty days before they receive final ACIS approval and are then forwarded to the provost for adoption.

A number of policies have been drafted and approved which can be found at

Process for Policy Adoption

  1. ACIS develops a draft policy for discussion and revision by the ACIS members.
  2. The draft policy is sent electronically to the LU community for feedback for a period of 30 days.
  3. The comments from the LU community are reviewed by ACIS. Revisions are made to the draft policy.
  4. The final draft is sent to the provost for review, modification, adoption, or rejection.
  5. After the provost's approval, an electronic message is sent to the LU community advising that the policy has been adopted. The policy is posted on the Library and Technology Services (LTS) Policies web page.
