Library Liaison Program

A subject librarian is assigned to work with each academic department. The main responsibility of the subject librarian is to collaborate with faculty in their assigned departments to:

  • acquire new library items that support department needs
  • remove old or obsolete materials that no longer support department needs
  • development subject and course specific LibGuides
  • link general library research guides as well as course related guides to Blackboard sites and/or syllabi
  • demonstrate new and subject specific resources
  • provide library instruction to department courses
  • inform departments of current and new library resources and services
  • providing library resource lists for program reviews

Departmental Liaison Guidelines

Department Liaisons are assigned by department heads and are the primary contact between the department and the library.

The library can best serve departments if the Department Liaison:

  1. Regularly communicates with their Subject Librarian about their department's research needs and needed library resources to support teaching and learning.
  2. Coordinates their department's recommendations for new books, journals, databases, etc. and submits them to their Subject Librarian by the deadline of March 1st.
  3. Disseminates information about new library resources and services to their department colleagues.
  4. Communicates the need for the development of materials to support course instruction, such as research guides or tutorials.
  5. Actively participates with their Subject Librarian in collection management and review of resources for their programs.
