Envoy (Departmental Liaison) Services

The Envoy Program is designed to foster personalized, long-term, collaborative relationships between HSLIC and the departments, programs and staff composing the Health Sciences Center.

  • Help HSC departments and programs solve their information and IT problems
  • Ensure that HSLIC resources effectively support HSC clinical, educational and research initiatives
  • Promote awareness of HSLIC resources, services and educational opportunities
  • Collaborate on grant applications with knowledge management or informatics components
  • Conduct an information needs assessment
  • Conduct customized presentations or training on software programs such as RefWorks or GroupWise
  • Conduct demonstrations of specific products and resources
  • Create subject guides to literature and resources in specific fields
  • Facilitate copyright advice/consultations
  • Consult on educational technologies
  • Help develop a departmental website and keep it current and relevant
