CMU Library Subject Liaison Program

How does your liaison librarian support teaching?

  • Provide resources for course development
  • Design a library research guide, or an online tutorial specifically for your course
    • Provide a selected list of resources relevant to a discipline or course. Such a guide or tutorial can be included in a course package. The subject librarians are flexible with innovative ideas to design a guide or tutorial that is suitable for course learning objectives.
    • Connect research guides to Blackboard course shells.
  • Deliver information literacy instruction for your course
    • Collaborate with teaching faculty to provide consistent information literacy training embedded in a course (e.g., CHM 349 requires all students to take four library training sessions to learn library research for chemistry as part of their grade toward course learning objectives);
    • Create instructional videos or tutorials integrated into courses (e.g. BIO 112 online library instruction tutorial as part of the laboratory, Scientific Literature: a library tutorial for Industrial/Organizational Psychology Graduate Students);
    • Present library instruction to students in person or online as needed.
