Library Liaisons & Faculty Representatives

LMU librarians aid the Acquisitions and Collection Development Department by serving as liaisons to academic departments. Liaisons develop the library's collections by assuring that approval plan profiles are accurate and current, and that the collections comprehensively support LMU's academic programs. In their collection development role, librarian liaisons choose library materials by actively seeking out, evaluating, and reviewing materials.

Liaisons also serve an outreach function, and can act as a conduit between academic departments and the library to make sure that we are serving the unique research and information literacy needs of students and faculty in each discipline to the best of our ability. Liaisons are assigned subjects based on his/her undergraduate and graduate degrees, academic interests, and the needs of the library.

Each academic department/program at LMU assigns a faculty member to serve as Faculty Library Representative (FLR) for that department. The FLR may be the primary contact person for his or her department with the library. FLRs are responsible for communicating curriculum changes to the library and providing feedback from the faculty to the library regarding library services, policies, procedures, and collections.

Faculty with questions regarding the purchase of library materials or other functions of the library should contact their departmental FLR or their librarian liaison (name links below will email the library liaison). For general questions about the liaison program, please contact Jamie Hazlitt.
