Each school has a designated Library Liaison who will work with you to identify resources necessary for your teaching and research pursuits. Your Liaison will also work with you to develop subject specific Research Guides to inform your students about the library resources available to them and how to use them.
A library liaison works with faculty members in several different areas:
- Collection Development – The librarian liaison works with faculty and staff members to develop the library's book, journal, and media collections and serve on University and School Curriculum Committees. You can contact your librarian liaison if you have a suggested resource for the library or would like to discuss the library's current and future collection in your subject area.
- Reference – The librarian liaison assists with citation verification, database searches, and other research needs.Your librarian liaison can work with you and your students to find the highest quality and most reliable resources available.
- Instruction – The librarian liaison works with faculty members to teach workshops and demonstrations on library resources and services. They will work with the faculty to create library assignments, library/literature guides, and other activities that lead to student success. Contact the Information Literacy Librarian for more information about library instruction or visit our Library Instruction Services page.
