Library Liaison Information

Drake teaching faculty and Cowles Library faculty share responsibility for the development of the library’s collection. Each College, School, and (in the case of Arts & Sciences) Department designates one of their faculty to serve as a liaison to the library.

The Library Liaison Program is the main vehicle of communication, collaboration, and cooperation between library faculty and discipline-based faculty. The library typically hosts a meeting of the liaisons once each fall and spring semester.
