ARL udgav sidste år (august 2013) en rapport om kontakten mellem bibliotek og forskere – New Roles for New Times: ARL Publishes Report on Transforming Liaison Roles in Research Libraries

Hele rapporten New Roles for New Times: Transforming Liaison Roles in Research Libraries (18 s./pdf)

om rapporten

The report proposes that evolving research library environments—including shifting  technology, student learning, and scholarly practices—call for a fresh look into the role of research library liaisons. Through their interviews, Jaguszewski and Williams find a general consensus that changing liaison roles are presenting organizational challenges, including identifying limitations to individual expertise, redesigning related institutional structures, and ensuring liaisons have proper training and know-how. The authors present an overall trend toward a hybrid model where liaisons pair their expertise with that of functional specialists, both within and outside of libraries, in an effort to further meet the needs of students and scholars alike.

Rapporten udpeger seks trends:

Trend 1: Develop user-centered library services
Trend 2: A hybrid model of liaison and functional specialist is emerging
Trend 3: Organizational flexibility must meet changing user needs
Trend 4: No liaison is an island
Trend 5: Collaboration is key
Trend 6: Create and sustain a flexible workforce
