Library Support for Instruction

Each academic department is supported by a subject liaison librarian who can assist you in a variety of ways. Your liaison librarian can help you and your students find credible sources for use in your courses. Liaison librarians can work with you to teach your students information literacy and help them learn how to use the library for their research. They can assist you in developing effective assignments and creating helpful instructional aids such as resource guides, tutorials, etc. In addition, you can contact your liaison librarian to recommend materials to purchase for the library. For more information, please visit http://library.webster.edu/services/liaison.html.

Our Access Services staff can help you set up materials on reserve, schedule videos, and reserve rooms in the library.
