Library Liaison Program 

The Library uses a Liaison program to facilitate the development of library collections and services which are responsive to the needs of faculty and students. Its key components are communication and collaboration.  Each academic division and program is assigned a liaison librarian, whose responsibility it is to establish and/or further a cooperative relationship that allows for the communication of faculty and student needs to the library.  In turn, the liaisons communicate about the library’s resources, services and policies. 

The program matches the librarian’s educational and professional subject expertise, whenever possible.  For example, the liaison to the social work, sociology and psychology faculty has a master's degree in social work.

Liaisons become familiar with curriculum offerings and faculty research and areas of expertise.  They learn about existing and new resources in their subject areas and share this information.  Liaisons collaborate with individual faculty as well as attend division/departmental meetings to exchange information.  

Liaisons request faculty assistance in developing collections.  Recommendations are welcomed.  Every effort is made to acquire the materials faculty request.  Faculty assistance in evaluating materials for removal from the collections is solicited and welcomed.  Liaison librarians share responsibility for selection by making appropriate purchases based on their knowledge of college curriculum and the research needs of faculty and students.   

Recent acquisitions can be browsed by following a link on the library’s home page.  To assist users in identifying items of interest, they are grouped by subjects relevant to the various divisions and programs of the college.  Lists are published regularly and previous lists are maintained for a year. Resources such as collections and databases are featured on the library’s home page.

Please send requests to the librarian assigned to your department/program: 

  1. Contact your liaison directly by email. 
  2. Circle the items you want in a print catalog and send it to your liaison through campus mail
