Liaison Librarians

Your library liaison is your link to an extensive range of services and resources offered by the library.  Each academic department has been assigned a library faculty member who will work with you to identify resources necessary for your teaching and research pursuits. 

What are some examples of what your library liaison can do for you?  Your library liaison can:

  • Provide library instruction for your classes;
  • Create subject-specific research guides for your classes;
  • Meet with your students on an individual basis to help with their research;
  • Help you with your research;
  • Help with finding existing library resources or open access resources to use in your courses; and
  • Help with requesting new resources, accessing new resources, or help troubleshoot problems locating resources.

Find out who your liaison librarian is now!
