The McDermott Library Liaison Program works with UTD's different schools of study to assist with the research needs of faculty and students. A librarian is assigned to each School or program to improve our outreach and assistance to faculty.
The goals of Liaison Services are to:
Liaisons can assist you with adding materials to the Library. In addition, these librarians are available to provide instruction on using the library for your UTD classes or groups. Finally, the librarians can assist with library research.
Visit Departments or Teams - Give presentations and demonstrate new library resources and services for programs or departments
Collaborate on course assignments - To provide opportunities to develop information literacy skill building
Provide awareness of complete spectrum of library services and resources - To identify and/or obtain appropriate resources for your course/assignment
Serve as an "Embedded Librarian" in your course management system - To answer library related questions for students at the point of need
Deliver classroom based training - To instruct students to critically assess information sources for quality, accuracy, and usability; to use the library's subject information sources; to teach students to understand and avoid plagiarism
Meet with Faculty One on One - Consult with you on your information needs and direct you to the best information resources
Create Research Guides - Collaborate with you to build research guides for your subject area or a specific course. If there is already a guide for your program, it is linked to the program on the Find Your Liaison page.
