What is the Liaison Program?
McDermott Library’s Liaison Program assists with faculty and students’ research by working with UTD’s different schools of study. This is done by assigning a librarian to each school or program. The goal is to work with faculty to help fulfill all library and research needs.
What can your Liaison do for you?
Present and Demonstrate new library resources and services directly to your school or program.
Create Coursework with you that will help students develop information literacy skills.
Inform You of all available library resources and services.
Be a Personal Library Contact for your students, to answer any library-related questions they may have.
Classroom Instruction on proper research techniques and use of library resources for your students.
Meet One-on-One to discuss your information needs, and help you find the right resources.

How can Faculty get involved?
- Invite your liaison to meetings, include them in your online course, and add their name to your syllabus.
- Inform your liaison about your program, and any redesigns or additions you make.
- Tell your liaison if you have library related needs, concerns, or suggestions, including subject-related materials.
