Final Report
I. Introduction
In September, 2011, the Library Executive Group (LEG) charged a small team of library staff to work on
developing one of the strategic priorities for the Library for the period 2012-­‐2015, i.e. formalizing the
network of library liaisons to departments and academic programs.
The team members include:
Kathy Chiang (co-­‐chair)
Virginia Cole
Dan McKee
Fiona Patrick (replaced by Gail Steinhart)
Patrizia Sione
Kornelia Tancheva (co-­‐chair)
Jill Wilson
Drew Wright
The LEG sponsors of the team are Janet McCue and Oya Rieger.
In a discussion with the sponsors, the following goals were set:
Look at the University’s strategic plan goal regarding library services for faculty and build a
robust cohesive program around it.
The program should include, among other things, a table matrix of liaisons, updated job
descriptions, clear expectations for liaisons, training for liaisons, means of spreading resources
across units and two-­‐way communication (from library to faculty and from faculty/departments
to library).
The team was asked to conclude its work by the end of December 2012.
LEG and the Managers’ Council also produced an initial Goal/Objectives/Deliverable Document, which
the team revised and is attached at the end of the report as Appendix 1.
