Since 1999, the Health Science Center Libraries have operated our Liaison Librarian Program. Liaisons are subject specialist librarians dedicated to specific academic units, including colleges, departments, centers/institutes, and academic programs. Liaisons are the primary contact for their assigned units, and provide a variety of information services to the students, staff and faculty of those units.
Your Liaison Librarian can:
- Meet with you in person, or over phone, email or video-conferencing to discuss any of your information needs
- Provide information consultations or library orientations
- Guest lecture in your class, department/laboratory meeting, journal club, resident conference, or other venue
- Develop and teach information-related classes workshops on topics such as expert database searching, use of citation management tools, and anti-plagiarism strategies
- Create customized online interactive tutorials for use by on- and off-campus students, staff and faculty.
- Conduct literature searches (including IACUC/IRB) for HSC faculty and staff
- Provide assistance with data management plan creation and instruction in data management
- Help create/update class reading lists
- Provide basic bioinformatics instruction and consultations
- Assist with the creation of systematic reviews
- Take recommendations for expanding electronic and print resources for the HSC Libraries’ collection
- Collaborate with you on publications, grants, instruction and other academic endeavors
Feel free to contact your Liaison Librarian with any information-related questions, or just to see what we can do for you and your research, teaching, clinical or administrative programs.
