The Engaged Health Sciences Library Liaison

Lindsay Alcock (Editor), Kelly Thormodson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Liaison roles are generally commonplace in medical and health sciences libraries as librarians strive to develop and enhance relationships and collaborations with clinicians and faculty. While the liaison of the past acted primarily as the main contact between respective departments and the library providing a facilitative function (e.g. arranging for instruction sessions, inviting feedback on the collection, providing updates on new programs and services, etc.), today’s liaison activities are more proactive and robust.

The Engaged Health Sciences Library Liaison features 10 program descriptions that illustrate how the reach and scope of librarians in the medical/health care arena has changed dramatically since the inception of liaison services.
