Librarian Liaisons and Teaching Faculty

Librarian liaisons work with teaching faculty to ensure that students have access to the resources they need to meet the needs of their classes. This includes developing collections that contain books, ebooks, periodicals, films, and databases that students may use in the course of writing research papers in classes receiving library instruction.

Liaisons also collaborate with teaching faculty to integrate IL into programs and individual courses where appropriate. The preference is to tie IL directly to an assignment (e.g. annotated bibliography) or specific skill (e.g. research methods) through a tightly focused session rather than providing generic “all-about” sessions.

Liaisons also capitalize on their status as faculty to access university-wide committees, keeping IL in the conversations about curriculum, assessment, and student life.
