Your Library Liaisons

A library liaison is essentially a personal librarian for faculty, staff, residents, fellows and students in the School of Dentistry. Some of the things we provide:

  • group or classroom instruction 
  • individual consultations on searching or using library resources
  • research support
  • assistance with literature reviews
  • AND we want to serve as a point person and advocate for you!  If you have a need or concern, please let us know.  We will make sure that the right person receives your suggestions and input!

I look forward to meeting you and working with you (whether that meeting is in-person or online)!
