Further discussion topics with an open forum will include: developing best practices; partnering and collaboration with various library and non-library groups on campus; the changing liaison model; what new roles are appearing for liaisons; how are the changes being developed and managed; and what types of assessments and tools being put in place to measure the success of these new programs.
