In 1997, Gettysburg College's Musselman Library revived a dormant liaison program. Librarians were assigned to each department and program on campus and expected to serve as the first point of library contact for the teaching faculty.
Some core communications and activities emerged that we now encourage every liaison to practice; attending department meetings, sending reviews of new materials, tracking faculty book orders, and visiting faculty offices are seen as standard liaison activities.
We were delighted to find that almost every librarian had some unique and interesting experiences to report. The authors collected these experiences so that they could be shared with the entire staff, especially new librarians who are just settling into their liaison responsibilities. Here we share some of our favorite liaison stories from across the curriculum. [excerpt]
