Session Description

There has been increasing recognition of the need for academic librarians to move beyond access and demonstrate their value directly to researchers. Through a research project consisting of a series of interviews to better understand faculty needs, we developed an outreach model that can be used to extend library services into new areas of research support. This presentation aims to deliver broadly-applicable lessons to aid academic librarians in the development of research partnerships with faculty.
