The value of the library committee, commission, or council has been debated by librarians in various types of libraries. A questionnaire of forty-one questions was sent to 109 medical and osteopathic school librarians. Ninety-nine respondents answered pertinent questions. These questions attempted to ascertain the actual functions and accomplishments of the faculty library committee. Librarians were encouraged to express their views on how well the committee fulfilled its functions and whether they thought the committee to be an asset. Although this study is based on the experience of medical school librarians, the literature on the library committee in university, college, public, school, special, and medical school libraries is reviewed.
