Library Advisory Board

Remembering Charles Nester, Jr MD


Dr. Charles Nester


The library was saddened to learn of the passing of Library Advisory Board member Dr. Charles Nester on September 11, 2021. Charles had served on the board since 2017, and was a long-time member of the Webster University Book Club. He valued life-long learning and eagerly engaged with board and book club members both to share and to learn. We are going to miss him terribly, and wish to extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.



About the Library Advisory Board


The library's advisory board is comprised of individuals within and outside of libraries who help us envision and plan for the future of our library in the rapidly changing world of higher education, academic libraries, and information access. The library has long had a culture of assessment, including periodic satisfaction surveys, collections reviews, and instructional outcomes assessment. Our board's work complements our internal assessment efforts and helps us envision a bold future in which the library continues and strengthens its role as a key partner in the University’s academic endeavors.
