Liaison Librarians

Liaison Services

Liaison librarians are the primary point of contact for the colleges to receive information about the Benedictine University Library and for the Library to receive information from the departments. Among their responsibilities are:  

  • Library and information literacy instruction
  • Journal database usage and instruction
  • Scholarly source evaluation
  • New material requests, including print and electronic titles
  • Research assignment planning
  • Subject-specific and general library reference questions
  • Coordinate library information needed for departmental self-studies and accreditation reports
  • Research consultations
  • Communicate with colleges regarding new resources and services

Librarians are here to support you in your research and teaching. Please don't hesitate to contact your liaison librarian whenever you have a suggestion, concern, or need for consultation.
