Mary Edwards, MLIS, EdD: About Liaison Librarians

This guide provides basic information about the services I provide, the subject areas and programs I work with as well as information about my research interests, education, and background.

What can a Liaison Librarian do?

As your Liaison Librarian Mary can:

  • Teach literature searching/library research skills to students as part of their credit classes
  • Assist with searching in support of systematic reviews
  • Conduct literature searches (including IACUC searches) for faculty and researchers
  • Work individually with faculty/students/staff to identify, gain access to, and efficiently use appropriate information resources

Mary's experience as a distance learning master's student and graduate coursework in online teaching and learning provides unique insight to the challenges faced by HSC distance education students.  Her doctoral work in educational technology informs her approach to instruction and her research practices.

Since joining the HSC Libraries' faculty in 2004, Mary has focused on distance education, attending the Association of College and Research Libraries' meetings and serving on ACRL's Distance Learning Section committees.  Her current work includes the areas of clinical information services, medical education, and assessment.

If you have any questions about resources available for the liaison areas served by Mary, or you would like to integrate library instruction into your curriculum, please contact Mary Edwards at
