LCC Library Liaison:
As subject or program liaison, Liaison Librarians are the main link between the library and academic programs. Liaison activities involve establishing a line of communication with faculty through e-mail, phone, or face-to-face meetings. Liaisons become familiar with program curriculum and trends, plus develop & manage a collection of resources that fit the program needs.
Library Liaison Teams were established to develop a team-based approach to Liaison work. This way a librarian does feel isolated and has others to talk about specific liaison work activities.
Recommended that the Liaison Teams meet and the beginning & end of each semester to create plans for next semester, review previous activities, or identify what next steps to take on projects.
Teams are asked to share happenings and activities that were successful or not at RST meetings. Teams can also meeting with Reference Lead & Liaison Librarian to discuss unique issues .
