Overview of Library Liaison Approach

Library Liaison: Christina M. Dillon

Discipline Faculty Liaison: Prof. William Murphy

Library liaisons work closely with the Discipline to make sure that the faculty are given the opportunity to select materials and services that best fit the needs of the curriculum. Each liaison works in a college-wide capacity. Whether it's attending the discipline meetings, working with a small group of professors to review a database, or attending a national conference, library liaisons have the expertise needed in the field to support the changing needs of the discipline and support student success.

Overview of the Communications Collection

At Miami Dade College, students and faculty have access to:

EBSCO eBooks: 370

Print Titles: 10,030

Discipline-Specific Databases: 140+ (all databases can be used for speech projects)

Especially useful databases for the academic discipline:

  • Communications & Mass Media Complete
  • Opposing Viewpoints in Context

Librarians: 12 Full-Time librarians committed to facilitating the incorporation of information literacy (MDC Learning Outcome #4) across the curriculum.

Each tab within this guide provides the MDC community with the latest information about every type of material or service that make up the current collection and resources. Working with the library liaison, faculty within the discipline now have the information they need to create an up-to-date instructional program.

Libraries are rapidly changing environments. For this reason, an overview is provided for each type of information collected by the College so that faculty can make the most informed choice about what resources to use in the classroom.

Regardless of the format, information is collected to support a variety of BA, BS, AS, and AA pathways.

Particular focus is given to materials necessary to support the oral communication curriculum, including:
