Library Liaison Program: Home

Scope of the liaison program

Our goal is to help facilitate the selection and management of library collections through:

  • Building strong relationships with faculty who are appointed and/or teach courses in our assigned departments
  • Learn and follow the development of the curriculum and other programming in our assigned areas
  • Seek out opportunities to learn more about materials published in the disciplines we support
  • Develop our knowledge of the library’s collections, with special focus on materials selected by or particularly relevant to our assigned areas
  • Share ideas and gather feedback around potential or purchased new resources with our faculty 

The program is designed to encourage communication and collaboration by assigning a librarian to each department and program on campus. Your liaison librarian will share information about new or potential library collections, programs, and services, and will also serve as an easy point of contact for any ideas, questions, or concerns you have about the library.
