Liaison Librarian Program

The Liaison Librarian Program provides faculty in departments with an ongoing opportunity for learning about the programs, services and collections of Parkland Library. A librarian is appointed to a specific department to maintain regular communication between the Library and that department. Departments are encouraged to include their liaison librarian in any forum, project, department meeting, or program where library support is a factor to be considered. The Library encourages the department to formally designate a faculty member as the department library liaison so the librarian can learn more about the department and refer faculty needs to appropriate individuals or units within the Library. The liaison librarian will keep the department informed of library activities and will act as the primary contact for faculty, representing the needs of the assigned academic department to the Library.

Depending on the needs of the department, activities of a liaison librarian might include:

Liaison assignments are made based on a combination of an individual's academic background, work experience and interest; assignments are evaluated periodically. Any faculty member with any question about Parkland Library, its programs and services, may contact their department liaison.

If you have questions or suggestions about the program, call or e-mail Anna Maria Watkin, Library Director.

Liaison Librarian Responsibilities
