One of a subject liaison’s responsibilities is guiding students to become proficient researchers. When disciplinary faculty assign projects requiring students to explore the scholarly literature, it is often crucial for library faculty and staff to help those students navigate and understand the scholarly ecosystem.
How Can a Subject Liaison Help?: Some of the topics we can address with library instruction are: What is the role of the academic library? What is the scholarly conversation? What are the norms and expectations for academic discourse in a particular discipline? What are a particular discipline’s gaps in existing knowledge? How to find, use, and manage data How to preserve and protect newly created scholarship If you are assigning a project requiring the use of library resources, please contact your subject liaison to create a personalized plan for your students.
