A library liaison is a librarian who functions as an intermediary between academic departments and the Library Learning Commons. Each academic department has an assigned library liaison who is happy to answer any questions regarding LLC services, collections, policies, and content delivery. The library liaison helps patrons schedule library tours, reserve classrooms, find research sources and materials, and provide individual tutorials on various electronic resources. Faculty members are encouraged to contact their liaisons if they have any questions about library services.
This year, the library liaison will be conspicuous in the departments and will work more closely with department chairs in order to revitalize the library’s print collection. This is one of the LLC’s major projects for 2014-2017 (see the MAP Priority 3.2). CSC librarians are analyzing holdings and removing outdated and irrelevant materials from the stacks (a process called “weeding”). The goal of the project is to establish a more complete and useful collection for the CSC community.
Subject experts (i.e. faculty) are enjoined to assist librarians in weeding the collection and adding replacement titles. Thus far, many faculty members have taken an active role in the project, and it has greatly improved the quality of certain segments of the collection. For more information about your subject area’s collection, please contact your library liaison.
