Library Liaisons for Academic Departments & Programs

At Fleet Library, each RISD academic department and program has a designated liaison. This librarian or archivist serves as your go-to contact: we can facilitate requests for materials, respond to general questions, and connect you to other library colleagues. In turn, we will work to identify and advocate for your department's interests within the library. If you're not sure who to ask, begin by contacting your Library Liaison.
