Presentation given virtually for ACRL ULS Professional Development Committee in December 2020.


Library professionals with data responsibilities often collaborate on data-related support with fellow library professionals, units across campus, and student and faculty researchers. It is through these collaborations and partnerships that libraries can leverage the infrastructure and diverse skill sets needed to build effective and successful data-related support for the campus community. Yet, how these partnerships form and the shapes they take, particularly within the library, varies.

In this panel, we share strategies for collaborations between data professionals and subject and technical services librarians designed to enhance library and campus support for data literacy, data management, data visualization, and other data-related needs. The panelists present several strategies that focus on the reciprocal nature of building relationships, teaching/learning new technologies, and sharing expertise within the library. With each strategy, the panelists share their experience implementing it and highlight how successful collaborations resulted in broader impact and increased exposure of the library.
