Virtual Discussion on Building Faculty and Staff Relationships

Following this year’s theme of New Directions and New Users, the CARLI Instruction committee invites you to a series of discussions on building relationships with external stakeholders. The first virtual discussion will focus on new conceptualizations, approaches, and methods to building relationships with faculty and staff. The event will be held via Zoom on Thursday, December 7 from 1-2 pm.

To facilitate our conversation on this topic, we will use Ellen Hampton Filgo and Sha Towers’ article “An Analysis of Relationship-Building in Liaison Work: Defining the Importance of ‘Hangout Activity’” (from The Journal of Creative Library Practice, March 2020) as a starting point. This article may be freely accessed at:  

Participants are encouraged to read the article ahead of time (but all are welcome to join regardless!).This will be an interactive discussion among participants, and an opportunity to reflect on how we develop relationships with faculty and staff outside of the library in our work.

Please note that this event will not be recorded.
