School of Nursing Liaison Guide: For SON Faculty

Liaison for the UAB School of Nursing

Welcome to the Lister Hill Library liaison page for the School of Nursing. As liaisons, we are here to make sure that you are getting the help you need with library resources, databases, searches, and training & instruction.

The objectives of the liaison program are:

  • To get information to faculty and staff
  • To give us a better understanding of faculty and staff needs to support teaching, research and clinical care
  • To provide a more personalized level of service
  • To increase the visibility of the library’s resources and services across campus

The services liaisons provide include:

  • Library instruction for faculty and students including classroom sessions and one-on-one consultations
  • Research assistance
  • Assistance accessing and using library resources and services
  • Collection development advocacy
  • AND much more!

For any of your library related needs, please do not hesitate to contact your library liaison using the contact info on the right side of the page.

Linking to Library Resources in Your Course Shell

In order for users to access many of the library's resources, especially off-campus, it is necessary to create a persistent URL (PURL) that will identify a user as being affiliated with UAB.

A PURL allows you to directly link someone to a subscription based resource like a journal article or online book on or off campus by using our proxy server snippet ( The snippet will authenticate UAB faculty, staff, and students so they can access a resource remotely.

We have created a research guide that provides information on how to link to library resources in Canvas, copyright guidelines, and contact information for more help. View this information on our Affordable Instructional Materials & Linking to Library Resources Research Guide.
