From Ithaka S+R:

In our latest issue brief, Anne Kenney, the Carl A. Kroch University Librarian at Cornell University, explores how librarians can leverage the liaison model to demonstrate “that the library is more than a purveyor of content and that its expertise is an essential component of the academic knowledge infrastructure on and off campus.”

Ithaka S+R Managing Director, Deanna Marcum Points Out in an E-Mail Announcement:

“As we move from a collections-centric to an engagement-centered model for librarianship,” Kenney argues, “it behooves us to consider the means for measuring how such engagement improves the lives of faculty, students, and others. Leveraging the liaison model will be critical to illustrating that the library is more than a purveyor of content and that its expertise is an essential component of the academic knowledge infrastructure on and off campus.”
