Meet Your Department Liaisons

What is a department liaison? 
The department liaison is a librarian who has been formally designated as the primary contact person between the library and your academic unit. The liaison’s role is to foster two-way communication between the library and your academic department or program.

What does the liaison do? 
The liaison establishes a relationship with the faculty in your academic unit and becomes familiar with your subject discipline and its resources. S/He works with the faculty to ensure that relevant information access skills and tools are incorporated into all levels of the program to which s/he's assigned.

What benefits does your academic unit receive?

  • customized instruction for students based upon faculty members’ requests
  • demonstrations of library resources for faculty
  • assistance to faculty and students in use of the library’s resources and services
  • a regular communication channel for requesting materials that support the curriculum
  • regular updates on new services offered by the library using the delivery method preferred by your department – email, oral announcements at departmental meetings, or printed announcements
  • a customized web page (LibGuide) linking to resources in your subject discipline
  • one-on-one consultations for research, grants, and special projects
  • mediated literature searching
  • reference assistance
  • assistance in completing interlibrary loan requests
  • notification of new library resources in your subject discipline
