Shifting Our Gaze from Service to Impact: What’s Changing in Academic Liaison Librarianship

Shifting Our Gaze from Service to Impact: What’s Changing in Academic Liaison Librarianship

 

More than ever, college and university success is driven by impact measures that demonstrate value to funders and stakeholders. Libraries depend on subject and liaison librarians to know what stakeholders need, and use these insights to shape services and programs. But the nature of liaison work is changing, and demanding that librarians reach out to stakeholders — and each other — in new ways.

In this session, you’ll learn:
– the changing drivers of impact on college and university campuses;
– the increasing importance of relationship capital in liaison work;
– a suggested method for uncovering the diverse needs of campus stakeholder communities
– mechanisms to track outreach work to improve understanding of our users’ changing needs and expectations.

Communicate Smarter and Better

Communicate Smarter and Better

 

Speaking is one of the first things people learn to do. But learning to speak does not equate learning how to communicate, which can have a serious affect on individual careers and success. Communication is arguably one of the most important business skills, no matter what the industry is and even more critical when your role involves dealing with customers. Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s not what you say, but how you say it”?
Whether eliminating misunderstandings or encouraging a peaceful work environment, efficient communication with those around you will allow you to get work done quickly, professionally AND with better results. Although everyone communicates differently, this program will give some pointers on how to improve your skills and increase your chances for success!

The Difference Between Discussion, Debate and Dialogue and How to Use It to Build Healthy Workplaces

The Difference Between Discussion, Debate and Dialogue and How to Use It to Build Healthy Workplaces

 

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but there are healthy limits to how far staff (co-workers and bosses) can take their opinions.  All too often, we forget to encourage a healthy dialogue and turn the conversation into a debate of one idea or belief versus another. Taken to the extreme, one or more staff members can dominate the discussion, hoping to gain support from the majority.

In this informative and interactive program, participants will learn the key differences between discussion, debate and dialogue and will be given time to reflect on the behaviors seen in their workplaces and the effects of those behaviors. Finally, we will look at techniques that all staff members can use to create healthier communication patterns in their workplaces to build connection, flexibility and cohesiveness.
