Working in partnership with the faculty, librarians help define assignments to enhance information literacy goals. Librarians also visit classes or embed in online spaces in order to recommend particular resources, demonstrate search strategies, discuss resource evaluation methods, provide instruction on how to incorporate research into one’s work properly, and more.
Each academic department is represented by a faculty member who serves as departmental liaison (DL). The DL is the library’s main contact for the department regarding collection development and requests, general library issues and communications, collection management projects, and questions that may arise regarding other library issues.
Faculty members are encouraged to participate in the development of the library's collections by recommending new and out-of-print materials that fall within the library’s collection development policy.
