Introducing Medical Library Liaisons
|During the summer the Medical Library is busy building our curriculum and collection for the inaugural M2 year. To make this seamless for the faculty and ensure all courses are equally supported, we have implemented a liaison program with one library faculty member assigned to each course. |
Your library faculty liaison will be researching materials (eg: eBooks, journals, websites, etc) and collaborating with you to prepare resources for your course, including creating an online course guide and integrating information literacy instruction! Look for an email from us shortly!
This is an informal structure, so feel free to contact any of us with your questions!
