Collection Development Liaisons

Each UCF department or program is assigned a librarian who acts as the collection development liaison. The liaisons are available at all UCF library locations to assist the faculty with collection recommendations, to place orders for new library materials, and to communicate with department faculty about collection needs, development plans, and notable new additions. These collection development librarians can be found by searching for subject area or program in the drop down menu. Several librarians across the entire UCF Library system, including regional campuses are actively involved with collection development. A select number of librarians, known as Subject Librarians, are handling collection development responsibilities and are focused heavily on instruction, reference and assisting faculty with research. Subject librarians provide research support to students and faculty to help them achieve their educational and academic goals. Subject librarians assist students at all levels with curriculum and research assignments. They are available in person, online, and by phone for consultation on how to find and use the best information for research projects and academic assignments. Subject librarians are also available to assist faculty members by providing instructional sessions for their courses, being available in Canvas, and by creating course-specific resource web pages. Subject librarians provide assistance to faculty members in their own research endeavors and also serve as a link to collection development for academic programs.
