Caroline Gibson

Academic Liaison Librarian (Content)

I am an Academic Liaison Librarian with responsibility for developing print and electronic library collections to support teaching and research across subject disciplines in Lancaster University Management School and the Faculty of Health and Medicine.

This involves identifying and responding to resource requirements together with liaison with library vendors and publishers, including the negotiation of licence terms. I also have responsibility for the advocacy and support of the online resource list system for the Faculties I support.

Together with my colleagues Andy Holgate (LUMS) and Tanya Williamson (FHM) I focus on supporting staff and students in the respective faculties with a range of library-related issues. This includes providing advice on selecting and using specialist databases, planning search strategies, systematic literature searching, referencing and using EndNote bibliographic software to manage citations and produce bibliographies.

I also assist in the co-ordination of the Library & Information Skills programme.
