Departmental Library Liaisons at Elmhurst University

The librarians of the A. C. Buehler Library serve as liaisons to each of the academic departments at Elmhurst University. Liaisons are responsible for developing the library’s collections as well as providing information literacy instruction in specific disciplines.  Library liaisons also assist faculty members with Blackboard.

We encourage you to consult with your departmental liaison concerning the library’s collections and information literacy instruction. Liaisons will also work with you as you develop assignments that include library research.
