For Faculty: Liaison Program

Services and resources available to current Willamette faculty

Liaison Program

Each librarian has responsibility for different subject areas, departments or schools. This allows them to acquire familiarity with the reference sources and collections pertinent to these areas. The liaison librarian notifies faculty of new resources in their area and serves as a contact person for the faculty when they have questions or suggestions for the library.  Faculty members are encouraged to share their class assignments, ideas for new courses, and research needs/interests with their librarian.  The liaison program is designed to facilitate communication and cooperation between faculty and librarians so feel free to contact your liaison librarian if you have any questions!












Reference Help

The Reference librarians are located on the first floor of the library and reference assistance is available to you or your students most of the hours that the library is open.  You can contact reference staff (Public Services) with your questions by phone or email or text.  You can contact your liaison librarian directly for assistance as well.


Research Consultations

Librarians offer individual appointments to students and faculty working on research projects or papers.  Feel free to recommend this service to your students; appointments can be made by filling out the Research Consultation form, or by contacting the appropriate liaison librarian directly.
