Library Liaison Program

The library liaison program facilitates communication between the scientific labs belonging to the DoC Boulder campus and the Boulder Labs Library. The library liaisons work collaboratively with researchers and labs to support their information needs. Services include:

Reference Inquiries/Research Analysis

Your library liaison offers in-depth reference services including publication/citation analysis, patent and market research, and searching for obscure data/references. We also provide assistance finding appropriate information sources and training in the use of library resources. To ask a question or set up an appointment send an email to: BoulderLabs.Ref@noaa.gov

Literature Searches

Boulder Labs Library Reference Staff offer advanced support for researchers conducting various types of literature reviews. They can carry out searches on your behalf to identify journal articles, guidelines, systematic reviews, and other evidence-based infromation to help meet your requirements. This service might be useful if you are searching a complex topic, strugglilng to find material (or narrow down the amount you find) or you simply want to make sure you are getting the best results. To request a Literature Search plase contact your librarian liaison today (see information below).

New Books/Resources

The liaison is the primary selector for items to be added to the library in your lab’s subject areas. We also strongly encourage your recommendations for new items: https://library.bldrdoc.gov/book-recommendation/. New Library materials are announced every Friday on our web site: https://library.bldrdoc.gov/services/new-books/.
