Overview of Library Liaison Approach

Library Liaison:  Beth Cloues

Discipline Faculty Contacts: Dr. Leon Palombo

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 World Languages Collection

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

  • 848 eBooks in world languages
  • 5 databases with relevant content
  • 2,712 print titles
  • and a rich information literacy program that can include embedded librarians and tutors in world languages classes

Each tab within this guide provides the world languages faculty and 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 will 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.
