Library Liaison Information

Drake teaching faculty and Cowles Library faculty share responsibility for the development of the Library’s collection. Each College or School (and in the case of Arts & Sciences, each Department) designates Department Liaisons to serve as Library contacts.

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

Find out more about the Library Liaison Program in our Collection Development Policy.

The table below lists the Librarian Liaison and Discipline-based Liaison for each College, School, or Department.
