Department Liaison Librarians

Every academic department and many college initiatives and service departments have been assigned a librarian.  The liaison librarian is designated to be an information specialist for your department.   Work of the liaison librarian may include:

  • attending academic department meetings to better understand your curriculum needs
  • creating and sustaining Subject Guides supporting your department
  • handling collection development (selection & weeding) of the print, audiovisual media, and e-formatted materials making up the library collections supporting your department
  • working on outside accreditation efforts (please contact your librarian one year prior to accreditors' visits)
  • one-on-one and/or department information literacy sessions for faculty
  • advising on copyright issues
  • assistance with OER materials
  • creating information literacy materials for classes taught within the library's instructional program
  • assisting departmental committees with research-related needs

If your department does not have a liaison librarian, please contact Nan Schichtel at 616-234-3082.
