Liaisons are librarians with primary job responsibilities in other areas
of the Library. They are assigned subject areas which usually match their
academic background. For more information on selectors' responsibilities
see information about liaisons.
Each academic department or program has a chosen library representative
to coordinate the department's requests for library materials. See a list of current Faculty Representatives.
