Liaison Librarians

Liaison librarians are professional librarians who act as a link between the library and its customers. Liaison librarians can provide consultations to faculty, staff, and students to

  • assist with search strategy development and refinement to find relevant journal and research literature
  • recommend resources to meet your particular information needs
  • refer you to other helpful library services to support research, education, and patient care
  • provide instructional sessions to classes, clinical groups/departments, or other groups on searching the literature, managing citations, accessing library resources, and using information to support an evidence-based approach

For general inquiries or for departments not listed, use the Ask a Librarian form for reference questions or the Instructional Session Request form for instruction. If you are from a specific college or department, find your liaison below and feel free to contact them directly.
