The purpose of the liaison program is to establish ongoing partnerships with Carthage faculty, students, and staff. The Library Liaison will assist faculty and students in answering questions and informing faculty about LIS services and library research.
Hedberg Library is committed to helping faculty teach students research processes and best practices. A librarian can work with you to create an instruction session that will produce appropriate electronic and print resources for your specific class or give a general overview of research techniques and resources available at Carthage. The librarian is available to come to your class to teach these sessions themselves or co-teach with faculty.
Faculty may also make suggestions for department-specific items to add to the library collection through their liaison (Faculty may also suggest additions to the library collection through this webform). Hedberg Library is committed to having a relevant and useful collection, so we welcome suggestions from faculty.
Please look at the list to the right to find the liaison for your department. You may contact them directly to set up instruction sessions or email Chris Grugel, Instructional Services Librarian (email@example.com).
Hedberg Library is staffed by professional librarians available to offer assistance with Carthage students' research needs. We offer research help in the form of
- Personalized one-on-one research appointments with subject experts
- Online research guides (see Subject and Class Guides)
- In-class instruction sessions
Please email the librarian for your subject (see librarian specialties list) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will assign the librarian best suited to tackle your research project, who will schedule an appointment with you.
