Librarians communicate value and vision, but how do higher education professionals hear this message? What are the issues for which we can offer expertise and partnerships? ACRL liaisons bridge the communication gap between librarians and colleagues such as planners, technologists, administrators and faculty. A panel of liaisons will discuss their work, how others view academic libraries, the lingo used to address concerns in higher education, and opportunities for partnerships to advance higher education in society. This program is sponsored by the ACRL Liaison Assembly Committee.
