This session will share the results of a survey that investigated how liaison librarians perceived the impact of different factors on their ability to build relationships with faculty. Over 2,000 liaisons working in US academic libraries completed a survey in October 2017, rating a series of statements related to efforts to build relationships with faculty. Respondents were asked to indicate their level of agreement with 16 relationship-building statements on a five-point scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree. Analysis indicated differences in liaisons’ perceptions based on a variety of factors, including the discipline area being supported, the percentage of the liaison’s position devoted to liaison work, and the educational attainment of the liaison. This session will share the full extent of the results and offer suggestions for liaisons working to develop strong collaborative relationships with the faculty in their assigned areas.
