Liaison Librarians


Liaison Librarians are responsible for the development and delivery of professional information services to USC staff and students. Contact your designated Liaison Librarian to discuss specialised support for training, teaching and research.

Staff on the Library Help Desk can assist with general queries about Library services and resources. Contact your campus library for more information.

Liaison Librarians can help you with your research activities through:

  • assistance to identify, locate and access resources
  • help with literature searches
  • access to document delivery and inter-library loans services
  • Endnote (bibliographic software)
  • tools to help you assess the quality and impact of research articles and journals 

Liaison Librarians can help you with your teaching activities by providing assistance to:

  • identify and select resources for course outlines and student assessment tasks
  • support your online delivery activities in Blackboard through e-Reserve and other digital resources
  • embed information literacy into your course, including collaboratively teaching information literacy skills within courses
