Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version



Academic libraries’ traditional and central role is largely supporting the teaching, learning and research objectives of their parent institutions. To this end, many libraries utilize liaison librarian programs, one type of an academic library service model to make connections with faculty, students and researchers.

This paper, in the context of academic library services and academic research output, looks at a unique service, namely that of thesis checking, provided by liaison librarians at the Alma Jordan Library (AJL), the University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine (STA) Campus.

Faculty are the leading researchers on campus but graduate students also contribute to research output via their theses and dissertations (TDs). One of the several methods available for increasing awareness of and distribution of TDs is the creation of a digital repository containing electronic versions of theses and dissertations together with bibliographic descriptions in the library catalog.
