Library Liaison Program

The Library Liaison Program at MVSU is designed to engage the faculty and librarians in a collaborative venue to strengthen the library’s services and collections. Librarians are assigned to each academic department as a liaison to serve as a link between the library and the academic departments in articulating the needs of the department of the library. James Herbert White librarians are knowledgeable of the subject areas for which they are assigned as well as evolving and emerging trends in librarianship.

The primary objectives of the Library Liaison Program are to:

  • Enhance collection development of the print and non print collections;
  • Assist in promoting and articulating the needs of the library and each academic department;
  • Enhance library services; and
  • Foster a collaborative and cohesive relationship between the library and the academic department
