Liaison Librarians

Your Liaison Librarian

Each academic department has its own liaison librarian. Your department's liaison librarian can:

  • Teach classes on request (advance notice is appreciated)
  • Support student research in your subject area
  • Work with you to develop book and nonbook collections
  • Share information about new resources, such as research databases
  • Set up trials of new products that interest you or that we think are important
  • Be the point person to answer all your questions about the library
