Liaisons

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.

Faculty Representatives

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.

Interns

Graduate students from USC's Davis School of Library and Information Science will occasionally sign up for internships with Collection Management. Interns are typically assigned a semester-long project, for example assessing an area of the collection. In addition, interns may participate in the day-to-day operations of the Unit, learning about general collection development activities.
