Faculty library representatives and subject librarians

Each academic department has a subject librarian who collaborates with the faculty library representative to:

  • develop library collections that fully meet the research and teaching needs of the student and faculty of the department
  • facilitate communication between the department and the Library about:
    • departmental activities such as proposed new courses or programs, or developing areas of research interest
    • library resources, services, policies, and instructional programs
