Library Liaison Program

The Liaison Program promotes a partnership between the academic departments and librarians to improve learning and teaching in the University. In this partnership the librarian's expertise in information resources complements the subject knowledge of the faculty.

Librarians are assigned to specific academic departments/programs to work with faculty to identify the department's information needs and priorities. 

Liaison services

  • Apprise faculty of library services and new information sources, such as databases; informing faculty of new sources that might be useful in a faculty member's fields of research; attending departmental meetings when possible.

  • Work with departmental faculty to learn about departmental goals and curriculum and course assignments as they relate to the library.

  • Work closely with the department's assigned Library Representative in an academic department on current acquisitions; adding materials that support international, multi-cultural, ethnic, women's issues in the academic areas for which liaison librarians are responsible.

  • Support distance education courses that the department is offering by customizing library support services for those courses.

  • Contributing to Subject Gateways and Course Gateways in the liaison area for which a librarian is responsible.
