    Morris Library's liaison librarians facilitate two-way communication between the library and faculty, students, and staff in all academic departments in order to provide library services that best meet each department's research, teaching, and service needs within the available resources. Specific services provided by the librarians are flexible to meet the needs of individual departments and the people in those departments. The program is inherently collegial and is dependent upon the support and cooperation of partners from many areas within and outside the library.
