Liaison librarians are faculty in the University Libraries unit and experts in the discipline of library and information sciences. As such, they lead information literacy education efforts across campus and provide key consultation services to their faculty and staff colleagues.
Liaison librarians can partner with teaching faculty to support student learning by:
- Creating online course guides with a customized, discipline-specific set of resources tailored to your assignments
- Embedding resources into your Blackboard site or other web page
- Looking at your assignments and suggest appropriate ways to correlate library research, lead students in the use of library resources, and assess how well our resources will fit your assignment
Visiting your class in order to guide your students in finding and using library resources appropriate to your assignment
Liaison librarians have developed these tools to support your teaching:
- Subject Guides: online guides containing discipline specific resources
- General Education Information Literacy Rubric
- Research Guidance Rubric: helps you craft assignments that support and engage students during the research process
- Video Tutorials: online videos to help you with your research
Have a question or need help with your research? You can always swing by your nearest library location to ask in person, but you can also e-mail us, chat with us, or request a one-on-one research consultation with your liaison librarian.
Liaison librarians are responsible for developing and maintaining collections related to their assigned disciplines. If you'd like us to purchase a book, DVD, or other item for the collection, please fill out this request form.
