During the past several academic terms, Liaison Librarians have stepped outside of the library to bring coaching and expertise to students and faculty members closer to the labs, classrooms and departmental spaces where they work. These added work places extend the reach of the Libraries by embedding its resources and staff knowledge within academic life on campus. This approach focuses on learners and researchers and strengthens the relationship between liaison librarians and faculty as they partner to teach students.
Drexel University Libraries has extended its a Liaison Program to the Health Sciences, designating specific librarians as liaisons to health sciences programs and schools. Through the liaison program the Libraries seek to enhance communication and deepen partnerships with health sciences departments in Drexel University's College of Medicine, School of Public Health, and College of Nursing and Health Professions.
