Library faculty services

Librarians provide a range of services to support teaching, learning, and research.

What we do

Librarians provide a range of services to support teaching, learning, and research. We collaborate with instructors to develop student-centered programming and collections.

Librarians are information experts – we assess the information needs of our patrons and create specialized materials and services (such as online research guides and information literacy classes) to meet these needs.

Librarians welcome opportunities to collaborate with instructors on a variety of projects, and to participate in departmental meetings or committees where library or information needs are discussed.

Don't hesitate to contact us to find out more about what librarians do – or how we can partner with you.

A librarian for every subject

Librarians at Camosun work within assigned subject areas to provide both research support and instruction for specific fields of study and areas of expertise. We:

  • design and teach effective information literacy sessions to support your curriculum and learning outcomes
  • create online learning resources (research guides) tailored to your subject or course needs
  • provide assistance in selecting resources for your reading lists
  • consider suggestions for new materials for the collection
  • advise at meetings or on committees where library or information needs are discussed
  • collaborate with you on projects and/or research

Why Information Literacy Matters!

Information literacy goes much deeper than spotting the difference between "Fake News" and documented fact.

While at Camosun College information literacy skills will help students choose quality sources for research assignments!

After college information literacy improves your life and makes you a more informed citizen.

Strong Information Literacy skills help everyone:

♦ choose the best deal when buying a house or car;

♦ navigate a new city without their cell phone;

♦ understand financial and legal documents; benefits? mortgage? marriage? insurance claims?

Liaison Librarians

As faculty peers, subject liaison librarians can collaborate with instructors to develop student-centered programming and collections.

Please see below for detailed information about your individual subject liaison librarian and our areas of specialization. We look forward to working with you.
