University Libraries, Hinesville Library partner to support students, faculty on Liberty Campus, local community

The Hinesville Library.

Georgia Southern University Libraries is partnering with the Liberty Campus and the Live Oak Public Libraries’ Hinesville Library to introduce a new part-time library technical assistant position that will support students and faculty on the Liberty Campus and the Hinesville community.

The assistant will move between the Hinesville Library and the Liberty Campus, which are adjacent to one another, to help students and faculty access the University’s library resources and make referrals to librarians across Georgia Southern’s three campuses. In addition, this person, alongside public library colleagues, will work with the Hinesville community. 

“Such collaborations bring the best of both worlds together, and Georgia Southern University Libraries is excited for the future connections this position offers,” said Lisandra R. Carmichael, Ph.D., dean of University Libraries. 

This marks the first time University Libraries and Live Oak Public Libraries have collaborated in order to better serve the community of Georgia Southern students and faculty, in addition to public library patrons.

Live Oak Public Libraries is a system of 16 libraries providing programs and services in Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty Counties with a mission to provide excellent, responsive service to enrich people’s lives, support lifelong learning and build and enhance our communities.

The libraries advance independent lifelong learning, information literacy, intellectual and creative discovery, and student success. We foster a welcoming and innovative learning environment, both physically and virtually, for research, collaboration and preservation of resources.
