Library Liaisons

Each subject area or academic department has been assigned to a Library liaison. The librarian assigned to your area will make recommendations for purchase of new materials, oversee periodical availability, and make deselection decisions. Ideally, classroom faculty will work with the librarian in their area to ensure the best-informed decisions regarding library resources and materials. The list of library liaisons for FY20 is below:
