Student Library Guide: Librarians

This research guide is designed to provide all Barry University students a basic overview of the resources and services available at the Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library.

What is a Liaison Librarian?

The Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library has assigned Liaison Librarians to each School or Academic Department. The liaisons are your point of contact for all things library.

Here are some of the ways your Liaison Librarian can assist with your library needs:

  • Teach you to quickly find information.
  • Information Literacy - is this a reliable source? What's a peer-reviewed article?
  • Research Instruction - individual, group, in-class.
  • Library guides for academic subject areas as well as for citing sources, test preparation, archives and special collections, career resources, and more.
  • Librarians continually evaluate the collection to keep resources current, relevant, and credible.
