Faculty & Staff: Liaison

ECU faculty and staff, this guide outlines all of the resources and services available to you!

Your Liaison Librarians

A library liaison is a librarian who has been formally designated as the primary contact person between the Linscheid Library and assigned academic departments at East Central University. This person serves as a contact for assistance with, or information about, any library service or issue. In other words, the liaison fosters two-way communication between the library and the university.
