Occasionally I am asked if it’s possible for a librarian to attend a departmental meeting in order to share information about the services that the library staff provides. The answer is always an enthusiastic “YES!” 

While our liaison librarians are always delighted to present this and other information at department meetings, I have developed a list which provides departments with an à la carte style menu of services from which they can choose. The menu contains the traditional library services you might expect such as literature searching assistance, citation management, and a journal section; these services are core to the missions of libraries.  Others services that we provide which might surprise you include quality improvement information, virtual reality, research data, reputation management, and video production.  The breadth of library services that we provide is what makes my job so interesting and is why I love working here.  Quite often the response from departments after perusing the list is, ‘I didn’t know that the library did all of this’. 

The bedrock for all library services is its dedicated liaisons and specialists who support the entire Health System.  If you would like to learn more about library services or how our expertise can serve you, visit https://at.virginia.edu/2vUBLcX.  You might be surprised to learn just how varied are our services. 

If you have questions, or you’d like a copy of the menu, please email me at bart@virginia.edu .
