Making Connections at the Personal & Curricular Levels
MetadataShow full item record
Making personal connections and building relationships. Connecting people to information at points of need is at the heart of what we do. As Health Sciences Liaison Librarians at the University of Waterloo, these Librarians will share practical approaches they have used to make connections at the personal & curricular levels in the Department of Kinesiology, and the Schools of Optometry, Pharmacy, and Public Health and Health Systems. Areas to be explored include the value of: - Making personal connections with students early in their academic career - Building meaningful and relevant relationships with researchers - Providing point of need support in the curriculum through assignment based instruction - Strategically marketing our expertise While these Liaison Librarians have their own success stories to share, they also want attendees to learn about innovative approaches taking place in the broader TUG environment. To accomplish this, there will be time for the audience to make personal connections with each other and engage in active discussion. This will provide an opportunity to learn from colleagues, gain insight into areas of interest, and ultimately leave with practical ideas that can be applied to their own liaison and outreach work at TUG libraries.
