Library Liaisons

The Library Liaison program pairs librarians with specific academic programs to better support faculty teaching and research, and to enhance the library’s instruction and collection development programs.

Collection Development

Collection Development Policies

Faculty wishing the library to order materials for their programs should send the order information to their library liaison. Requests to order may be sent in any form (email, publisher’s catalogs, etc.) as long as sufficient information is included to enable ordering. For books, this information may include the title, author(s) or editor(s), publisher and date of publication, edition, price, and ISBN if known.If you have particular areas of interest in your field, please let your library liaison know so that they can attempt to anticipate your needs as well as keep an eye out for materials of which you may not yet be aware.

New periodical information and request form.

Library Instruction

For undergraduate classes, please contact Joe Garity, Coordinator of Library Instruction, to schedule an instruction session. For graduate classes, please contact your library liaison to schedule an instruction session.
