B02. Playing Triple-A Ball with the Faculty: Advocacy, Access, and Authority in Library Liaison Activity
The library liaison is key in helping the library function and be recognized as an important part of the college community, and in developing communication within the community. Advocacy – marketing and promotion of our collection and services to the college community Access – open and comfortable two-way communication between librarians and the faculty Authority – claiming and demonstrating our expertise in collection development and information literacy These are important elements in library liaison, marketing, and other interactions with the college. The 3 A's help improve communication, establish efficient means to obtain input from the college for improving the collection and library services, and establish the library's place as an important part of the college.
