Library Representatives

Your role as the Library’s Representative in your department is critical to facilitating communication and collaboration between the Library and academic units.

We ask that you:

  1. Inform your Liaison Librarian regarding curriculum changes, new faculty hires, emerging research interests
  2. Contact your Liaison Librarian with requests for new Library materials
  3. Ensure that members of your department are aware of relevant Library services
  4. Invite your Liaison Librarian to regularly attend departmental meetings to report on Library initiatives and discuss Library-related issues
  5. Attend meetings hosted by the Library to discuss major Library developments, provide feedback, and ask questions
  6. Distribute information from your Liaison Librarian to your departmental colleagues
