Guide for New Faculty: Subject Liaison Services

Resources and information for new Stonehill College Faculty members.

Subject Liaisons

The Library's Subject Liaisons are your link to the extensive range of services and resources offered by the Reference Department and Library. Each Reference Librarian serves as a Subject Liaison for a group of Stonehill College departments. Liaisons focus on improving reference services to their assigned departments, contribute to collection development, and provide faculty with a personal point of contact for requesting acquisitions. Each department and some programs have been assigned a Liaison, but all members of the Stonehill Community are encouraged to use the services of any member of the library staff.

In cases of suspected plagiarism, reference librarians can assist you with sources to use to check on the originality of student work.  We have found a number of services that can be of assistance in detecting plagiarism. While these sources are not comprehensive, they have been especially useful at determining plagiarism in the past.
