Liaison Librarians

Librarians are assigned to each school to serve as a single point of contact for library services and instruction on finding reliable information. Students and faculty are encouraged to contact their liaison librarians for one-on-one or group instruction on using library resources, and for research support in the form of database searches, systematic reviews, and assistance with bibliographic citation tools. Contact your school liaison librarian to get started.
