Liaisons are the "go-to" librarians who can connect you with library services, spaces, collections, and technology that you need to make the most of what The Ames Library brings to academic and co-curricular programs at IWU.
Whether you have a research question, wish to design a new assignment for your class, need to know more about scholarly publishing, or have a question about how to access library collections (whether held at Ames or available through another library), your first stop is your liaison librarian.
For related needs, e.g., instructional design for online courses or integration of community engagement or service learning components for your courses, you may also wish to work with other liaison services provided by staff housed in the library. Follow the links below to access the full range of expert support we can provide to IWU students, faculty, and staff.

Information Technology Services (ITS) liaisons can help faculty and staff to evaluate departmental technology needs, identify IT training needs within the department, provide instructional support for classroom technology and online learning environments, and address service calls that require coordination among IT departments on campus.
Staff members in the Action Research Center (ARC) may work with students, faculty, and staff directly, or collaborate with library liaisons, IT liaisons, or others, to provide comprehensive support to faculty wishing to integrate community engagement and/or service-learning components in their courses.
