 What is the Library Liaison Program?

The Library Liaison Program exists to improve communication and encourage collaboration between the library and the college community, including onsite and distance learners. Librarians are appointed to work with faculty in specific units and serve as the primary contact between the units and the library. The program is vital to the library as it strives to meet the information needs of faculty and students. The goals of the library liaison program are to:

  • Deliver a higher standard of service to the college community
  • Increase library awareness of faculty curricular needs
  • Increase faculty and student awareness of the library's resources and services
  • Strengthen collection development activities
  • Improve information literacy activities
  • Expand the role of librarians as spokespersons for the library and as advocates for the department
