Overview of Library Liaison Approach

Library Liaison:   Laurel 'Erin' Fennell 

Discipline Faculty Contact: Political Science and International Relations

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 Political Science and International Relations Collection

alt=””

At Miami Dade College, Political Science and International Relations students and faculty have access to:

  • 3,762 eBooks
  • 18 databases with relevant content;
  • 1,137 print titles
  • and a rich information literacy program that includes embedded librarians in political science courses.

Each tab within this guide provides Political Science faculty and the MDC community with the latest information about materials and services that make up the current collection and resources.  Working with the library liaison, faculty within the discipline 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, materials related to the subjects of political science and international relations, are collected to support the courses and programs.
