Elevate Liaison-ship: Uncommon Relationships with the Library

Sunday, May 5
2:20 PM - 2:25 PM
Room: Columbus KL (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)

Background : As Librarians, we want to support as many people, departments, and areas on our campus. Yet we tend to write about only the common or main areas like the schools or college of Health/Medical Sciences. Human Resources is a seemingly uncommon department to support, especially for an Academic Health Science Center. The purpose of this abstract is to describe the forging of a new relationship and liaison area with the Human Resources department and how we plan to evaluate this relationship.


Description : Human Resources department on any campus, organization, or institution is extremely important, like the library. Without either department, academic organizations cannot function well or properly. And similarly, sometimes we are overlooked when decisions are made. At this Academic Health Science Center, we have joined forces to support the professional development of the enterprise, not just the clinical staff. HR felt like we as an institution needs to do more to support the career development of all its personnel. Out of that passion and hunting for a solution, she discovered UC Berkely's "Career Counseling Library". Thus the beginning of a beautiful relationship was born. I as the newly minted HR Liaison was concerned; I was not sure if we had resources to support career development for everyone. I was wrong, we had tons of career development resources.


Conclusion : One result of the relationship was to develop a LibGuide that can be updated regularly and display usage statistics. The LibGuide went live January 14, 2019. It has already been publicized in the HR newsletter and viewed 130 times to-date. The next step is to discuss a larger evaluation of the LibGuide and this uncommon relationship.
