Liaison Librarian to University College and Honors Program, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
Library liaison activities create many opportunities to create greater connections between the library and students, faculty, and the curriculum. Harris offers recommendations for liaison involvement; tips for assisting faculty with designing more innovative, multipurpose assignments that integrate technology, research, and student creativity; and integrating student-driven research outcomes into “soft” assignments. To increase student success, retention, and information literacy, UNC Charlotte’s Atkins Library unveiled a “Personal Librarian” initiative to new and returning students and faculty during fall 2010. This presentation addresses critical questions: What strategies are most successful in encouraging students and faculty to contact their assigned liaison librarians for library assistance? Does a student’s academic success and information literacy increase by working with a “personal librarian”?
