The library wanted to help facilitate growing the Library/Faculty relationship, and the liaison program is a perfect opportunity to do just that. Over the last year a committee was formed to rebuild and enhance the library liaison program. New initiatives included publishing a Library Liaison Program LibGuide, creating a timeline with communication templates, conducting a baseline survey and follow up survey, face-to-face meetings between subject librarians and departmental liaisons, hosting a liaison appreciation event and more robust involvement in the department allocation and collection management process. We have seen an increase in open communication with not only department liaisons but all faculty, including instruction sessions for new faculty and by librarians other than the Instruction Librarian, OER inquiries, faculty research consultations, and more student engagement with librarians. The positive remarks from both department liaisons and librarians have been flowing all year!
