The Barret Liaison program has been established to strengthen the partnership in research and lifelong learning between academic departments and Barret information professionals. Each academic department and program has a liaison assigned. The liaison program aims to

  • Seek departmental input in collection development
  • Provide research consultation to faculty and students
  • Work collaboratively with faculty to manage access to scholarly literature
  • Teach information fluency and solid research skills to students

Liaisons and their departments are listed below. Please contact your liaison by emailing or calling 901-843-3890.

We look forward to working with you and your students.
