What Liaisons Say about Themselves and What Faculty Say about Their Liaisons, a U.S. Survey
Arendt, Julie; Lotts, Megan
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v12 n2 p155-177 Apr 2012
Liaison librarians and faculty in chemistry, English, and psychology departments at colleges and universities in the United States were surveyed. They answered questions about services provided by the liaison and satisfaction. Liaisons' satisfaction with their performance was associated with active liaison service, such as recent contact with the department and more time spent on liaison work. Faculty satisfaction with liaisons was associated with contact with their liaisons. We did not find associations between liaisons' descriptions of their work and faculty satisfaction with their liaisons for the pairs of faculty and their liaisons we were able to match. (Contains 39 notes, 3 tables and 1 figure.)
