Literature Reviews

Librarian Support

Liaison Librarians

Liaison librarians work closely with one or more departments at UT. They assist with research, teach classes, and order the resources their faculty members need to conduct research. Many liaison librarians have a masters' degree in library/information studies and an academic background in the subject area in which they work. Find your subject librarian by watching this short video.

There are two ways to work with a liaison librarians:

  •  Investigate the research guides they have created in your subject.
  • Email the liaison librarian who works with your subject and set up an appointment. You can find out which librarian works with your subject/department here


Periodically, UT Libraries runs a workshop covering the basics and library support for literature reviews. While we try to offer these once per academic year, we find providing the recording to be helpful to community members who have missed the session. Following is the most recent recording of the workshop, Conducting a Literature Review. To view the recording, a UT login is required.
