Extreme Makeover: A Blueprint for Redefining the Role of the Liaison Librarian in the Academic Library

What does it mean to be an engaged liaison in today’s academic library? New trends in liaison roles have shifted the focus of many librarians from traditional activities to new areas, such as scholarly communication and research data management. Join the ACRL Instruction Section’s 2017 Midwinter Virtual Discussion Forum to delve into the issues related to these trends and hear about one librarian’s experience using a model of change management to successfully engage this shift. The ACRL IS Discussion Group Steering Committee presents:

Extreme Makeover: A Blueprint for Redefining the Role of the Liaison Librarian in the Academic Library

A virtual discussion led by Cinthya Ippoliti, Associate Dean for Research and Learning Services at Oklahoma State University on Wednesday, February 8th, 2017 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Central Time.

Some fun facts about us: Since starting in October of 2012, we have taught 371 classes to students located in 42 different countries. After discontinuing a number of courses, we currently have 110 of them on the books, approximately two thirds of which are scheduled for teaching over the next six months. There are currently between 4000 and 5000 users in the course management system.

While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools generally expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows.
