#Library Liaison Roles Report by #ARL


The Association of Research Libraries is pleased to release the final report of a pilot Library Liaison Institute organized by Columbia University Libraries, Cornell University Libraries, and the University of Toronto Libraries, and held at Cornell University in June 2015. Nearly 50 liaison librarians from the three Association member institutions convened in Ithaca, New York, for two days to examine—through a mix of presentations and active learning experiences—future models for structuring liaison work, and to discuss ways to measure the impact of liaison work on fulfilling the mission of the university.
The report, authored by Library Liaison Institute organizers Barbara Rockenbach, director, Humanities and History Libraries, Columbia University Libraries; Judy Ruttenberg, program director, Association of Research Libraries; Kornelia Tancheva, associate university librarian for Research and Learning Services, Cornell University Libraries; and Rita Vine, head, Faculty and Student Engagement at the University of Toronto Libraries, summarizes the institute and offers critical reflections and recommendations for reorganizing liaison work as well as guidance for offering fu)ure Library Liaison Institutes.
