Liaison Services @ Your Library

Have you met your liaison? The winter intersession can be a good time to get acquainted. Steenbock liaisons work as principal contacts for each department and program the library serves.

Find liaisons by Department/Program/Center; Find liaisons by Name

Library liaisons can provide the following services:

  • Assist with library services and policies (e.g., Library Express, faculty runner cards, UW System search and retrieval…),
  • Customize email alerts to keep you informed about new articles matching your topic criteria and tables of contents of your favorite journals,
  • Provide in-depth reference consultations—our office or yours--(e.g., help with strategy and database choices, customize your own alerts…),
  • Supply customized instructional sessions and course web pages for students (e.g, hands-on training in using specific databases in your subject area, cited reference searching, evaluating websites),
  • Verify citations,
  • Assist with purchase requests or recommendations,
  • Consult on questions related to publishing your research (e.g., identifying target journals, managing copyright, measuring research impact, open access publishing),
  • Provide in-depth orientation for new faculty, staff, graduate students, and project and research assistants.
