Subject Liaisons

The Butler University Libraries have a liaison program to encourage faculty participation in the libraries and to ensure that the libraries' resources support the University curriculum and both student and faculty scholarship. Each academic department or college is assigned a professional librarian as a liaison. Please contact your liaison for information literacy instruction or support, with purchase requests or subscription recommendations, and any other question about library services or resources.
