How the Library Supports Faculty Interests

Library Collection and Policies

Department Liaisons and Subject Collections

The Library designates a portion of its collection budget to support specific subject areas and assigns librarians to oversee the expenditure of subject area library budgets. These subject areas are aligned with the academic departments on campus, and each department is asked to name a faculty member to liaise with their library counterpart to enhance the collection. We welcome faculty input for collection purchases. Department Liaisons and Subject Librarians


University Library Committee

The ULC is a body of faculty who are elected by their respective departments to represent large university groups such as health sciences faculty, arts & humanities faculty, etc.  The ULC meets periodically throughout the academic year and acts in an advisory capacity to the Library Dean.University Library Committee


Use of Departmental and/or College Funds for Library Purchases

The Library has made arrangements with the Colleges of Business, Nursing and Pharmacy, as well as the Dental Hygiene, and Health Physics to maintain subscriptions to targeted digital resources by using funds under the control of departments and/or colleges.  Such arrangements exist with the approval of the fund manager, associated faculty, and library staff.   For more information on this, please contact Associate University Librarian for Collections
