Each U of I College has a librarian assigned as a subject liaison. Find your liaison using the table below, or click on the topics to learn more about what library liaisons can do for you.
Liaisons teach subject-specific classroom sessions at the request of faculty. Most incoming first-year students receive some library instruction through English 102, but these sessions cannot cover all the subject databases and other resources they may need for research over the next several years. Instruction sessions with liaisons are invaluable for high-quality student research.
They also conduct one-on-one research sessions with students for specific subjects or assignments through the Research Assistance Program.
Liaisons work with faculty to create research assignments that maximize students acquisition of research skills.
Liaisons select and purchase books, multimedia materials and other items for the library in their assigned subject areas. To request that the library purchase materials, send requests directly to the appropriate subject liaisons listed below or use the online resource purchase request form.
