Library Liaison Officers

Ananda Rangapillai Library is delighted to broadcast a novel Academic Learning, Research and Teaching support service, “Library Liaison Officers,” for each school. The motto of this service is to provide influential academic andresearch support to the Pondicherry University community like teaching faculty, administrative staff, research scholars and students.

Why Pondicherry University needs School/Subject Specific Liaison Library Officer?
Subject special Library liaison officers provide a range of services that focus on a particular area or discipline. The subject-specific library liaison officer will serve as a catalyst or interface between the Library and schools community in this capacity. They initiate the selection and acquisition of resources for the collections, provide subject-specific instruction in using information resources, and provide reference and referral services in general and specialized research areas.

Some of the advantages of having School Library Liaison Officers will be:

• Orientation/awareness programs for specific research areas and their online resources
• User’s guide to the services and collections of the library
• Available for research consultations and hands-on class instruction sessions
• Staff to contact with suggestions to build the collection development.
• Subject specialists within their subject areas.
• Reference queries are handled thoroughly.
• Referral Services from other institutes and universities within and outside India
