Liaison relationships are at the heart of most library instruction programs. They facilitate collaborations between librarians and academic faculty to integrate information literacy into the curriculum. But what happens when those liaison relationships become strained, or fail altogether? How can we rebuild productive collaborations and engage with both faculty and students? This session will share the story of one library's strategy to reinvigorate a stagnant liaison relationship and transform it into a thriving information literacy collaboration. We will discuss a variety of techniques for connecting with faculty, administrators, and student leaders to overcome past hurdles and jump start new initiatives.

Participants will:
  • Be able to define challenges impeding a liaison relationship.
  • Be able to apply strategies to revive a struggling liaison program.
