Liaison librarians

Each faculty, school and department has a liaison librarian who is your contact in the library. Liaison librarians are subject and resource specialists. We can help you:

Source new and relevant library materials to support your units

Contact us if there are required and recommended texts you would like your students to use. If you are teaching a new or revised course or unit, we can help you identify relevant resources. Purchase of new material is guided by library collections governance.

Manage reading lists

We can help you make your reading material available to students in Blackboard, Canvas or the library catalogue, through the Subject materials service.

Create links to library resources in Blackboard/Canvas units

We can help you create copyright-compliant links to online resources in Blackboard or Canvas units. If your course is blended or fully online, we can help you source relevant online resources.

Use copyright-protected material in teaching and learning

Ask us about using copyright-protected material in your teaching or consult Copyright for Teachers (login required). We can source copyright-compliant resources for use in your units.

Develop students' research skills

We will work with you to develop tailored training programs linked to assessment requirements for your students. We offer research skills sessions to students at all levels, including advanced training in discipline-specific databases. Contact us to arrange sessions during your tutorials or lectures.

Develop students' referencing skills

Invite your students to consult our referencing guides and ask us about EndNote training for your students.

Support higher-degree research students

Are you supervising higher-degree research students? Liaison librarians offer research consultations and assistance to research students at any stage of their degree. Simply refer your students to their liaison librarian or contact us to arrange an appointment or group training session on your students’ behalf.
